We recently received information from the U.S. Department of Education (ED) regarding Arizona’s 2017 Census Data that would be used by ED for the calculation of FY20 (2019-2020 school year) Title I, Part A allocations. Please note that these data impact Census LEAs (non-Charter LEA entities).

Attached here from ED are:

  • The memorandum concerning the 2017 ages 5 to 17 local educational agency (LEA) poverty and population estimates that the Census Bureau recently published;
  • A spreadsheet comparing the 2017 Census data by State with the 2016 data; and,
  • A spreadsheet containing the 2017 Census data for the LEAs in the State. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) plans to use these data to calculate fiscal year (FY) 2019 (school year 2019-2020) Title I, Part A allocations.

These data are also available on the Census Bureau’s website at https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/saipe.html

ED is providing this opportunity for you to review these data, verify the accuracy of the boundary survey data on which these data are based, and to voice questions or concerns you may have regarding your LEA’s data. Should you have questions or concerns regarding your data, please contact the Census Bureau directly at [email protected] or by calling (301) 763-3193 shown in the attached memo before March 4, 2019.
