Title I, Part A – Waiver of Specific Provisions
The New York City Department of Education has applied for a waiver of certain provisions of Title I, Part A of the ESEA to enable the Department to continue to provide Title I funding for one fiscal year to schools that become ineligible for Title I funding in a particular year but were Title I-eligible and served in the prior year. This application for a waiver has been submitted to the NYS Education Department (SED) and, if granted, would apply in FY 2016 through FY 2019.
