Title I Carryover Waiver Approved!

The US Department of Education (ED) has approved Arizona’s request for additional flexibility related to the carryover limitations for Title I, Part A funds, specifically a waiver of the once in three year limitation, as outlined in Section 1127(b) of Title I.

While the statute limits the carryover amount for LEAs to 15% of the annual allocation, it also provides an option for LEAs to request the ADE to grant a waiver of that limit no more than once every three years. Approval of this request enables you to request to carry over more than 15% of your FY2013 Title I, Part A funds, even if you received a waiver for FY2012 funds.

LEAs are reminded that this waiver applies only to flexibility regarding when Title I funds are available to the LEA. All other Title I requirements remain in place.
