TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:

SUBJECT: 2010–2011 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Consolidated Federal Grant Application

On Monday, June 7, 2010, the 2010–2011 NCLB Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC) form for the 2010–2011 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant is scheduled to open in eGrants. The 2010–2011 NCLB ADC form initiates the application process for programs in the 2010–2011 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application. 
Eligible applicants use the ADC form to identify how they will apply in the grant application for each funding source. The information that is submitted on this form is considered to be binding. Applicants are advised to complete the process of obtaining local board approval, as appropriate, and ensuring accuracy before submitting the form. The NCLB ADC form, once certified and submitted by eligible applicants, will activate the 2010–2011 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application.

Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants include local educational agencies (LEAs) with a 2010–2011 preliminary planning amount for any of the following NCLB programs:

  • Title I, Part A—Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies
  • Title I, Part C—Education of Migratory Children
  • Title I, Part D, Subpart 1—Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk—State Agency Programs
  • Title I, Part D, Subpart 2—Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At Risk
  • Title II, Part A—Teacher and Principal Training and Recruiting Fund
  • Title III, Part A—English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement—Immigrant
  • Title III, Part A—English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement—Limited English Proficient (LEP)

LEAs with carryover (roll forward) funds in the Title II, Part D formula program or Title IV, Part A—Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities program must also apply for those carryover funds through the 2010-2011 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application.

Allocations

Preliminary planning amounts for these NCLB programs have been made available to LEAs online at: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/opge/formfund/generalinformation/entitlementsbyprogram.html.
Note that eligibility and planning amounts for special LEAs, including open-enrollment charter schools, South Texas ISD, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and Texas School for the Deaf, will be determined based on the submission of the 2010–2011 SC5010-NCLB Data Request Form for Federal Funding due April 30, 2010, as well as on final U.S. Department of Education allocation data to be released in June 2010. Therefore, planning amounts for these entities will not be shown on the Web site until July 2010.

How to Apply

Eligible applicants must apply through the eGrants system. To apply, applicants must have appropriate Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEA SE) access. Applicants who do not have TEA SE access for eGrants should visit the TEA SE Information Center online at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/opge/egrant/index.html. An overview of the TEA SE online request process can be found at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/opge/egrant/eGrantsOverview.pdf. If you need further assistance, please call the eGrants Help Desk at (512) 463-7025 or e-mail egrants@tea.state.tx.us.

Reporting Deadlines

The following table lists reporting deadlines for programs approved in the 2010–2011 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application.
