What Are Considered Qualifying Purchases and Expenditures of Title 1 Funds?

Individual agency determines how to use the Title 1 funds to help meet the educational needs of its residents. This funding is supplemental and is not to be used to supplant the financial responsibilities of the agency. The Education Services Coordinators are available to offer guidance and assistance with appropriate expenditures for supplementing the educational needs of your agency.

Therapeutic expenses are not to exceed 25% of the total agency budget. This includes staff, supplies, professional development for therapy staff, incentives, etc.

Parental Involvement must account for at least 1% of the total agency budget.

All professional development for agency staff funded by Title 1 must be in addition to required hours for agency employment or position certification.
