ESEA/NCLB Title I Comparability Report FY16

Section 1120A of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)/No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), requires that school administrative units (SAUs) with multiple attendance areas maintain comparability of local/state resources between the Title I schools and the non-Title I schools; or if all the schools at a grade span are Title I schools, then comparability of local resources must be maintained among the Title I schools.

The ESEA Title I FY16 Comparability Report is ready to be completed and submitted to the Maine Department of Education by Jan. 16, 2016. The List of FY16 Comparability Sites, the blank Comparability Report with instructions for completion in Word and Excel formats, a Powerpoint presentation, and sample completed reports are posted to the NCLB web site at http://www.maine.gov/doe/title-IA/forms/index.html. The list of SAUs required to submit a Comparability Report follows.

A webinar is scheduled for December 16 at 2 p.m.
