The FY'02 Title II appropriation has not yet been awarded. As a result, the prior
year's level of funding is being held constant. Should the actual revenue differ,
adjustments may become necessary.
Per capita allocations are provided to the community school districts and high
schools in two streams: 1.) fifty percent of the available funds are distributed
using the number of low income children from FY'02 Title I target school designation
data; and 2.) 50% is allotted based on the audited October 31, 2000 registers.
The pupil register includes both special and general education students. Inclusion
of special education youngsters is consistent with the policy of removing "barriers"
between general and special education. District allotments are listed on Table K:2.
Title II funds are being allotted to supplement costs associated with science staff
development and coordination. Staff development funds are allocated to districts,
high schools and citywide special education on a per capita basis using the register
and the available resources. Additionally, each community school district and high school
superintendency is being allocated funds to help support 40% of the cost of a districtwide
science coordinator position to help address identified teacher needs. Allocations can be
found on Table K:3. BOR Circular No. 1. 2001-02, "Cost Factors for FY 2002 for All
Reimbursable Programs," should be consulted for grant numbers and rates. Budget
scheduling procedures are found in the "District Schedulization" circular to be issued
Reimbursable Title II funds are being used to support the Math Resource Centers (MRC)
and Science Technical Assistance Centers (STAC). The MRC's and STAC's were transferred
from a central to a district responsibility in FY'90. Services, however, continue to be
provided to all districts based on locally identified needs. Districts 6 and 8 and
Central operate the MRCs, while Districts 22 and 25 are responsible for the STACs.
Allocations for these initiatives are shown on Table K:4.
