The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) (20 U.S.C. § 6301) allows districts that do not obligate 15 percent or less of their Title I, Part A funds for a given fiscal year to carryover the unobligated funds and obligate them during the succeeding fiscal year. Districts may request a waiver to exceed the 15 percent carryover limitation once every three years. Districts receiving a Title I, Part A allocation that is less than $50,000 per year may carryover unobligated funds without limitation. Detailed provisions are available in the resource list on this page.
DPI will contact districts that need to complete a carryover waiver form.
ESSA (20 U.S.C. § 6321) requires districts receiving Title I, Part A funds to conduct an annual review of their local and state expenditures to ensure Title I and non-Title I schools receive a distribution of those funds on an equivalent basis and to maintain documentation of the results and the action taken, if necessary, to remedy findings of non-comparability. Districts with only one school per grade span are exempt from this requirement. Comparability calculations and supporting evidence for the school year should be maintained in district records for future monitoring visits and/or audits.
