Memo Text

This document constitutes official notice of the preliminary 2021-22 allocations available for use in the 2021-22 school year under provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title VI, Part B Section 611 and 619 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and Arkansas Code Ann. § 6-41-205 and § 6-20-2305.  Preliminary allocation amounts are available on DESE’s Federal Funding website: https://dese.ade.arkansas.gov/Offices/fiscal-and-administrative-services/school-funding/allocations

These allocation amounts should be viewed as preliminary.  Open-enrollment charter schools newly opening or experiencing significant expansion in the 2021-22 school year have been included using estimates of current year student counts.  Adjustments will be made midyear based on actual student data as of October 1, 2021 and December 1, 2021 for these open-enrollment charter schools.  Any changes to the overall state grant at the federal level could also result in district level changes.

In general, the 2021-22 allocations have an obligation deadline of September 30, 2023 and a liquidation deadline of December 9, 2023.  Some prior year funds included in these allocations carry earlier obligation and liquidation deadlines.  Funds authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act also have differing deadlines.

For 2021-22 allocations, please note the following: 

  • Title I, Part A: source code 6501, revenue code 45110
  • Title I, Part C Migrant: source code 6502, revenue code 45111
  • Title I, Part D: source code 6510, revenue code 45120

The Title I, Part A notice lists allocations for school districts and open-enrollment charter schools.

The Title I, Part D-2 Local Institution notice lists funding allocated by school district for specified local delinquent institutions by district and location code.

The Title I, Part A Neglected Institution notice lists school districts whose Title I, Part A allocation includes funding for a local institution for neglected children.  These funds are to be used to provide Title I services to children residing in these institutions.  Please keep a record of services provided and funds expended.  This list indicates institution by location code and school district and the amount of money the eligible students in the institution generated.  The funds generated by the neglected eligible students have already been included in the total Title I, Part A allocation for the district.  The indicated amounts should be set-aside from the total Title I, Part A allocation for services to children within the indicated institution.  These amounts will need to be budgeted on line item 1594 Title I, Part A Neglected Institution at the district level.

Please note updated procedures require LEAs to use a prescribed location code for each facility when recording expenditures within APSCN for delinquent institutions (SOF 6510) and for neglected institutions (SOF 6501 set-aside).  This will allow ADE Finance to monitor fund balances at the facility level in the event that a facility relocates or closes during the year.  These assigned codes will replace existing coding in some cases, including use of general location code 699.  These locations codes are included in the allocations lists.
