School Improvement Grants-American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009; Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965
Document Number: E9-20612
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-08-26
Agency: Department of Education
The U.S. Secretary of Education (Secretary) proposes requirements for School Improvement Grants authorized under section 1003(g) of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA), and funded through both the Department of Education Appropriations Act, 2009 and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The proposed requirements would define the criteria that a State educational agency (SEA) must use to award school improvement funds to local educational agencies (LEAs) with the lowest-achieving Title I schools that demonstrate the greatest need for the funds and the strongest commitment to use those funds to provide adequate resources to their lowest-achieving Title I schools in order to raise substantially the achievement of the students attending those schools. The proposed requirements also would require an SEA to give priority, through a waiver under section 9401 of the ESEA, to LEAs that also wish to serve the lowest-achieving secondary schools that are eligible for, but do not receive, Title I funds. Finally, the proposed requirements would require an SEA to award school improvement funds to eligible LEAs in amounts sufficient to enable the targeted schools to implement one of four specific proposed interventions.

Therefore, we are correcting the deadline for the submission of applications to October 8, 2009.

Agency: Department of Education
The Secretary amends the regulations for the American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Services (AIVRS) program to permit a consortium of Indian Tribes to establish a separate legal entity to apply for a grant under this program. This change is needed to provide the flexibility required by the Department to make grants to Indian Tribes that choose to form a consortium and, rather than authorizing one of the Indian Tribes of the consortium to serve as the grantee, create a separate legal entity that serves as the grantee on behalf of the consortium and that is responsible for using the grant funds to provide services to all the Indian Tribes in the consortium.
