As required by law in order to receive Title I, Part A funds, the District shall provide to TEA written assurance regarding comparability of services across the District in teachers, administrators, and other staff, as well as in the provision of curriculum materials and instructional supplies.
For information on the District salary schedule, see DEA(LOCAL).
Comparability of Services
As reflected in District records and as submitted to TEA, the District shall document compliance by using one of the following methods:
Comparison of state and local expenditures per student;
Comparison of per-student expenditures for state and local base salaries; or
Ratio of students to full-time equivalent instructional staff whose salaries are not federally funded.
In special programs, such as special education, bilingual education, or English as a second language, a lower ratio may be maintained and more money may be spent per individual campus as necessary to fulfill other legal requirements. These costs shall be excluded from the comparability of services calculations.
