First, I would like to thank you all for your support and grace as I have transitioned into the role of Interim Title I Director. Filling the void after Dr. Winquist left was no easy task, and I will continue to strive to support our LEAs and SEAs in the coming months until a permanent Director is named. Secondly, it is with sadness that I announce that February 1, 2023, was Dr. Moore’s last day as the Deputy Superintendent for Student Achievement. We are pleased to welcome DuAne Young as the new Interim Deputy Superintendent, who began his work with NDE on January 23, 2023. Finally, I would like to welcome Dr. Susan Ulrey to the Title I Team as the new CSI/TSI/ATSI EPP. Dr. Ulrey joins our team after almost nine years of experience at NDE, and we are so lucky to have her expertise on our team!
In conjunction with our the GMU, the OSSS Team has been working on opening the Consolidated Application; we hope to have it open in about a month so that LEAs can begin the important work of building their FY24 budgets for Titles I, II, III, IVA, and V. As a celebration, this year’s Consolidated Application is actually being unconsolidated so that LEAs can submit grant applications one at a time. Similarly, there was a momentous announcement at GMU’s Quarterly Subrecipient Meeting on January 18th, when it was announced that NDE will be moving toward a 27-month grant cycle, which should eliminate many of the current steps necessary to roll one fiscal year into the next. Although there will be a new 27-month cycle, programmatic requirements and regulations from NDE and USED will still be monitored, and plans are still required. More information on the release date and requirements for FY24 will be forthcoming.
Official Title I, Part A and Title I, Part D Allocation letters have gone out to all subawardees. Please provide a list of allocations by school site to NDE by Wednesday, March 1, 2023. You may submit your lists to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about any of these exciting announcements, please join us at the next Title I Office Hours on February 22, 2023. Please note: Updated calendar invitations have gone out. Please remove the old reminders from your calendars.
