Training Sessions:  Navigating Through ePeGS for the NCLB Application

List Serve Message Date:  May 26, 2009


The Federal Programs’ funding applications will be available on ePeGS for the 2009-2010 school year.  We anticipate opening the funding applications for LEA use on Monday, June 1, 2009.  The deadline for submission of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Consolidated Application on ePeGS is July 1, 2009. 

Although the NCLB law did not change, the look and feel of the consolidated application has changed.  Federal Programs’ staff will be offering training on entering information into the NCLB Consolidated Application on ePeGS.  These training sessions will consist of an overview of the ePeGS funding application tool, highlighting the NCLB requirements such as the Title I Breakdown of Allocation (BOA), transferability options, REAP-flex options, schoolwide program options, and the tracking of ARRA funds.  In addition, staff will demonstrate how the planning tool ties to the funding application.  Following the presentation, Federal Program staff members will be available to provide assistance as the participants enter their school district information into the NCLB application.

The list of training sites can be found at:  http://dese.mo.gov/epegs/documents/epegsSpringWorkshop2009.pdf

Each location is limited to the first 25 registrants.  Due to space and technical limitations, only one computer will be available per school district.  School districts may have more than one person attend the session, but please remember, there will only be one computer for your use.   Sessions will start promptly at the designated time and participants are expected to attend the training portion of the session.

In order to register, please email the following information to webreplyfedpro@dese.mo.gov:

School District Name

County/District Code

Number of people attending from the district

1st choice – Session Number

2nd choice – Session Number

DESE will confirm your registration location with a follow-up email.  

Items needed to complete the NCLB funding application:

  1. Participants must have their User ID and password in order to access their specific school district’s information.  We have copied the authority from the current Federal Grants’ Application system to the ePeGS system.  When the system becomes available on June 1, make sure you have the appropriate security authority.  If you need to make changes, the DESE Web Systems User ID Request Form is located at:  https://k12apps.dese.mo.gov/webapps/securityforms/MO500-2377.pdf
  2. A copy of your proposed budgets.  The ePeGS system uses the combination of function codes and object codes for budget purposes.  Sample budget forms showing the function/object codes for the various program budgets are available at:  http://dese.mo.gov/epegs/FederalProgramsBudgetPages.html
  3. Breakdown of Allocation information.  The system copies enrollment and free/reduced lunch data from Core Data screens; however, it is the LEA’s responsibility to make sure the information is correct.
  4. The budget pages are linked to the planning tool.  LEAs should have completed the Goals, Objectives, Strategies, and Action Steps (GOSA) for the various programs.
  5. Any other supporting documents to complete the application.

If you have questions, please contact your Federal Grants Management Supervisor.
