Source: John Stains, Supervisor, Effective Practices
Intended Audience: District and Building Administrators, Special Education Directors
Date: January 24, 2012
Districts who submitted a Letter of Intent may now submit the Special Education Improvement Grant applications. Applications are due March 2, 2012, by 5:00 p.m.
Your Needs Assessment should be submitted in a word document to the IMACS web reply (email@example.com). ONLY THE NEEDS ASSESSMENT will be submitted this way.
Before you begin writing the grant into ePeGs, it is very important that you verify with your district that the previous year's grant has been rolled over to the 2011-2012 Planning Year AND the 2012-2013 Budget year in ePeGs.
The budget information for your grant will be completed in IMACS. Once you have completed the plan in ePeGs, (without the Needs Assessment) you will need to hit the submit button in ePeGs. This will pull over the information from ePeGs into IMACS. There is a slight delay in this process and you may need to wait a few hours before it appears in IMACS. At that point, the budget items can be entered in IMACS. You must also hit the submit button in IMACS once your budget is complete for your final submission.
Full grant information is available at http://dese.mo.gov/se/ep/ImprovementPlan.htm. If you have any questions, feel free to call 573-751-0187.
