Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! Summer went by fairly quickly, but I hope everyone is getting back into the groove of things smoothly. If it has not happened already, your EPP will soon be reaching out to you to schedule monthly technical assistance meetings with you to ensure that all federal assurances are being met, spend-down is happening at a healthy rate, and that any questions that you may have surrounding your federal programs are answered in a timely fashion.
As mentioned before, the Title I Team is committed to bringing our stakeholders the best customer service possible. To improve, please take a few minutes to complete a brief customer service survey, which will directly impact our services. Please take the survey at this link.
Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 9th! NDE's Title I Team will offer a free webinar on Title I Allowability from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm (the webinar may conclude sooner, but we want to allow time for questions and discussions). Participation in this webinar is free and voluntary, but I urge anyone who makes fiscal allowability decisions for the Title I program to attend. Please complete this brief form if you want to sign up for this great resource: Title I Allowability Webinar Sign-up
The August Title I Community of Practitioners (CoP) meeting is Thursday, August 17th, at 9:00 am. If you are interested in joining this important committee, please see the section in this newsletter with CoP membership information.
