SUBJECT: Waiver Request School Improvement Grant Carryover
LISTSERVE MESSAGE DATE: July 29 , 2010
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education intends to request a waiver of the requirement to carry over 25% of 2009 1003 (g) School Improvement Grant funds in order to fund Tier I schools that will not be served in the first year of the funding period. Missouri believes that it is important to begin improvement activities in the Persistently Lowest-Achieving Schools in the State during the first year of the funding period. It is furthermore important to fund as many schools as possible for the three years of the funding period. For these reasons, Missouri is seeking a waiver of the regulation.
Please visit the DESE Web site at www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/instrucimprov/ to find more information about the waiver and instructions to share your comments.
