As required by the ESEA, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, (PL-107-110), the District has established and implemented a District-wide salary schedule and will use state and local funds to provide services in Title I schools. Since both schools receive Title I funds, state and local funds will be used to provide services which are substantially comparable in grades 4K – 2 and grades 3 – 5.

It is the stated policy of the District to ensure equivalency among elementary grade levels within the District in provision of:

1) Teachers, administrators, and auxiliary personnel (not paid with federal funds)

2) Instructional materials and supplies (state and local funds only)

Documentation verifying compliance with this policy is maintained annually. These records are available for SEA monitoring or auditor review upon request.

It is understood that unpredictable changes in enrollment or personnel assignments which occur after the beginning of a school year need not be included as a factor in determining comparability of services.
