    FY19 Title I spending window

    Deadline September 16, 2019

    The Maryland State Department of Education has fully approved the FY19 Title I application and has released all funds to the district. FY19 Title I OTPS funds will be available for school spending from Thursday, November 29, through Monday, September 16, 2019. Any funds not encumbered by the end of the day on Monday, September 16, will be forfeited. Your school may begin entering K12Buy orders and submitting PSTARs provided that your school performance plan, Targeted Assistance plan, or Charter Title I plan have been affirmed by your Title I specialist in the Data Monitoring and Compliance department.

    Please note that spending of FY19 Title I funds is governed by regulations of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and federal grant spending guidelines, as well as state and district requirements. This reference document will support you in determining what expenditures are approvable for your school utilizing FY19 Title I funds. Also, please ensure that all required support documentation for expenditures is maintained electronically and is available for audit through September 2025.
