The FY17 Title I Data collection application is now available in the Security Portal. All districts that received Title I funding in School Year 2016-17 must submit data to ESE through this tool. Full instructions are available in PowerPoint and PDF. The submission deadline is July 6, 2017.
Annual Title I Data Collection
In accordance with federal Title I reporting requirements, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) is required to collect data from districts receiving Title I funds each year. Districts must report data at the district and school level:
- For the district as a whole, information on the number of private school students who received Title I, Part A services in FY17, and, for certain districts, the number of students in local neglected programs who received Title I, Part A services in FY17;
- For each Title I school, information on the provision of certain Title I requirements that apply to individual schools, such as parent/guardian notifications, targeted assistance services, and actions taken as a result of each school's Accountability & Assistance Level (if applicable).
District personnel with the Title I Grant Application and Amendments Drop Box security role can access the application. The Directory Administrator in your district assigns this role. A list of Directory Administrators in each district is available at Directory Administrators.
Our Title I data collection timeline is aligned with ESE's Student Information Management System (SIMS) end-of-year data reporting deadline. Accordingly, the deadline for submitting Title I data via the Security Portal is Thursday, July 6, 2017. Districts that fail to meet this deadline may be subject to withholding of Title I, Part A grant payments.
Thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation in providing these important data to ESE. If you have any questions about the Title I data collection process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
