SUBJECT: 2011–2012 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Consolidated Federal Grant Application

On Monday, June 6, 2011, the 2011–2012 NCLB Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC) form for the 2011–2012 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant was opened in eGrants. The 2011–2012 NCLB ADC form initiates the application process for programs in the 2011–2012 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 ensure accuracy before submitting the form. The NCLB ADC form, once certified and submitted by eligible applicants, will activate the 2011–2012 NCLB Consolidated Federal Grant application.

Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants include local educational agencies (LEAs) with a 2011–2012 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)

Allocations

Preliminary planning amounts based on preliminary data tables from the US Department of Education (USDE) for these NCLB programs have been made available to public school districts online at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index4.aspx?id=5040.

NCLB 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 become available in late June when the final USDE allocation tables have been received by the agency. With this final USDE data, special LEAs will have their NCLB planning amounts and public school districts will be able to see their revised NCLB planning amounts.

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.
