NPEFS data are used for a wide variety of purposes, including to calculate federal program allocations such as states’ ‘‘average per-pupil expenditure’’ (SPPE) for elementary and secondary education, certain formula grant programs (e.g. title I, part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) as amended, Impact Aid, and Indian Education programs). Furthermore, other federal programs, such as the Educational Technology State Grants program (title II part D of the ESEA), the Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program under title VII of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, and the Teacher Quality State Grants program (title II part A of the ESEA) make use of SPPE data indirectly because their formulas are based, in whole or in part, on State title I part A allocations.
