I am so proud to announce that I have been named the permanent Title I Director for NDE. I have appreciated working with our Title I Partners in an “Interim” capacity these past few months, and I would like to give a “shout-out” to my amazing Title I Team—I could not do what I do without them! and I am very hopeful for the work that we (NDE and LEAs in collaboration) will complete together moving forward!
As we move into May, it is some of the most exciting and fast-paced times of the year as we near the end of the school year, and the end of the fiscal year. Please reach out to your EPP to get an updated snapshot of your spend-down for federal programs. Federal entitlements do not “close out” at the end of the State fiscal year, but we are coming up on some deadlines: the last day to submit Funding Application Revisions is August 1st, with a final obligation date by September 30th, and a final RFR date of October 21st.
ESSER II is winding down! If you think that you will be unable to obligate or expend your funds by the September 30th deadline, please get with your ESSER Core Team Member ASAP so that those funds can be reverted back to NDE to be redistributed out to LEAs that can use the funds—the goal is to revert zero dollars back to the U.S. Treasury. Please keep an eye out for a Reversion Memo for ESSER II coming out in the next few weeks.
We wish you all a happy, safe and successful end to your 2022-2023 school year, and we hope to see you at our next Title I Office Hours on May 24, 2023 at 9:00am. Please sign up for invitations to these important events in the “Office Hours” Section of this newsletter.
