SUBJECT:  REAP - Small, Rural School Achievement Program and Rural and Low-Income School Program

LISTSERVE MESSAGE DATE:  April 2, 2013

Part B of Title VI of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 authorizes the Secretary of Education to award funds under two separate formula grant programs designed to address the unique needs of rural school districts.

In order to determine the 2013-2014 allocations and eligibility in accordance with the rural education legislation, the United States Department of Education (ED) plans on using information from the 2013-2014 spreadsheet located in the 2013-2014 Small Rural School Achievement Program file at the following website: http://www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/financialmanagement/Smallruralachieve.html

Since the data on the spreadsheet will affect all State and LEA allocations, the U. S. Department of Education has urged us to provide LEAs with an opportunity to verify the data on the Excel spreadsheet.  The deadline to submit changes to this spreadsheet is April 10, 2013.  Please email your changes to Pat.Kaiser@dese.mo.gov.

For your convenience, we have prepared a list that identifies districts whose eligibility for one of these two grants has changed between school year 2012-2013 and 2013-2014.   This list is located at the same website listed above.  The name of the file is “REAP Changes for 2013-2014”.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact our office at 573-751-4420 or federalfinancial@dese.mo.gov.
