Yes, the federal grant waiver has been applied for and we have received preliminary approval. Guidance will be coming out shortly and we will be working with districts to maxmize all funding sources.
I don’t see the option to save the chat anymore. Maybe a ZOOM update . . .

CARE Act waivers- preliminary approval Section 1127(b) of Title I, Part A of the ESEA to waive the 15% carryover limitation for Title I, Part A funds;· Section 421(b) of the General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) to extend the period of availability of prior fiscal year funds, for Title I, Parts A-D, Title II, Title III, Part A, Title IV, Parts A-B, and Title V, Part B programs, and the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth program;· Section 4106(d) of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA to waive a needs assessment to justify the use of funds;· Section 4106(e)(2)(C), (D), and (E) of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA to waive content-specific spending requirements;· Section 4109(b) of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA to waive spending restrictions on technology infrastructure; and· Section 8101(42) of the ESEA to waive the definition of "professional development," which might otherwise limit the ability to quickly train school leaders and teachers on topics like effective distance learning
Is there any guidance for students who are moving in/out of districts (and the state)? Students who are fully engaged in a remote learning model (which could also include specialized supports)…should we endeavor to keep them connected to their current system? Funding (ADM) and liability concerns? But is keeping the student enrolled in their best interest (which leads questions about those particular processes and timelines)?
ESEA Title Programs has put out some information on the waiver for Title Grants. Please find on the website, and check your email for something from Title I, II, IV!
What is the plan for districts related to grading for Quarter #3?
If anyone has any questions related to IPLA please email me at email@example.com. Thanks!

This may be a dumb question - but can Rent being paid during this remote learning period be considered part of business loss/costs?
We can see it
we can see
yes cab see
Private providers may not have a business administrator—send to the exec director
What waivers are being requested by the US ED to Congress? How will they potentially impact funding?
Can you share out the SPED matrix?
Will you send us a copy of the SPED document with any identifying info masked?
Can this template/tool for tracking services be sent to everyone?
Could Becky Fredette share this template with all Directors/Superintendents so that it could be used consistently?
Please also share that with charters!
The template that Frank just showed
Please share with non-publics too please.
Can you please update of the DOE's thoughts on SAS in 2020-21?
I am confused about the possibility of CAREs (federal funds) which may include funds that districts are paying to keep drivers receiving salaries ( partial or whole). Will the dollar amount from federal funds go to the school district ( to recover costs paid ) or to the transportation vendor?
And if we have our own drivers, can we recoup any of those costs if we are paying them despite the reduced work?

@aweaver, spending template was sent to all BAs and Sups for district schools and heads of schools for charter and nonpublic schools. If you did not receive it, please email me at Caitlin.firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, Caitlin
Where can I get all the links from today?
We will be sending out a survey to schools to gather input on fall benchmarks. As of now, NHSAS is still planned for Spring 2021.
Guidance documents and past conference calls are posted at https://www.education.nh.gov/who-we-are/commissioner/covid-19
Any updates on meeting the requirements of the screenings for the dyslexia law?
nonpublic online meetings are Thursdays at 10
The real question is not when will we reopen but how will we reopen?
nonpublic calls at 10am on Thursdays email Shireen at Shireen.Meskoob@doe.nh.gov
sorry - my daughter got to the keyboard
Epping will have two teacher transition days if we reopen.

Any update on a possible statewide recommended end date for schools should we go remote for the rest of the school year?
Where on the doe website is there a page just for school leders with this type of stuff on it?
are non-public private schools held to the same end date(TBD) as public schools?
That open assessment link exists already? Where can we find that?
Dr. C. https://www.education.nh.gov/who-we-are/commissioner/covid-19
Will that SAS "light" be available to non-public as well?
Absolutely. Any students in the state would have access to the SAS Light
I am confused about the collection of local assessment data in the fall for accountability reporting for a variety of reasons. Doesn't the waiver "waive" Federal accountability for this year?
Testing or reporting after a pandemic is not necessary, more time for learning is critical.
Dr. Erin Hagerty
Will the NHSAS "light" be accessed through the NH State Assessment platform?
If a district (or schools within a district) aren't eligible for Title 1, does that mean that they would not get any CARES funding?
Our bus company walked away from the discussion.
Links are not working.
Yes, the NHSAS Light will be accessed thorugh the NH State Assessment Platform but anyone will be able to access the platform.
Do we have to have accessed Title 1 funds in the past to be eligible for CARE funds?
If the governor extends the remote learning through the end of the school year will he address extended school year?
Should we still be tracking our Medicaid forms for our service providers, who are providing services remotely.
If the state will not be providing an end of year date and if school buildings remain closed for the rest of “this school year”, will the state give a date for building to be re-opened for ESY/year round school programs?
So, then can't we look at the data within our own districts? I don't understand why it would need to be submitted to NHDOE
The Title I reference in the CARES act is strictly about the formula for allocating funds
It is not Title IA funding.
@Meryl, no you don’t have to have accessed the funds will be allocated in the same percentage as your title 1 proportion of the total pot of state funded
I think Directors would appreciate the ESY conversation in our meetings with Becky. If we do not reopen buildings for the this year, it will be very challenging to have all IEP teams meeting, making determinations, compensatory decisions, etc. and still have time to hire, prep, etc. for a much more comprehensive ESY program.
Since our district adequacy amounts are based on ADM how will that be calculated fo next year?
Please find the link to information on the website about ESEA and CARES funding: https://www.education.nh.gov/sites/g/files/ehbemt326/files/inline-documents/2020/care-essa-update.pdf
ADM is based on enrollment, not attendance
Yes, the how do we reopen has to do with clarity around what is a virus "clean" building? How do we ensure students and staff of no further exposures? Will we be notified of residents being monitored and/or confirmed cases? What do we do if one of these individuals shows up at school? I'm sure there are more questions that will come up as we get closer to May 4th.
Being able to see assessment/benchmark data at a state level will also help inform the state on how we can better support districts, provide services, professional development and resources.
With no wide testing ability a clean building seems impossible to imagine...
Links don't seem to be live for most people today. Go to education.nh.gov. Resources pages is there. Bookmark it because we iupdate it with new guidance documents.
It would be great fi we could copy and paste as we used
We have also posted all the information, links, and guidance on www.nhlearnsremotely.com as well
Thank you again for your responsiveness and support.
Not sure why links are not live. Nothing on our end
