Title I School-level Staff Assignment

Principals have the authority to assign Title I paid staff within the school, as long as it is within the parameters of the Title I budget and the function of staff complies with the position’s job description, in fulfillment of the Title I program requirements. However, Principals must assure the following:

Traditional Schools:  All employees paid with Title I funds shall expend their time and effort servicing this federally funded program, as evidenced by the approval of the Federal Time and Effort Certification (formerly known as Circular A-87), and by each individual staff assignment schedules.

Charter Schools: All employees listed on the Charter Schools Title I Budget Appropriation Details Form (Appendix A of the Title I Handbook, FM-6634), shall expend their time and effort servicing the Title I federally funded program, as evidenced by the completion of the Federal Time and Effort Certification Form (Appendix B of the Title I Handbook, FM-6902), and by each individual staff assignment schedules.

Additionally, each eligible Title I school must maintain in the corresponding folder of the School-level Compliance Filing System, copies of the Assignment Schedules for those staff paid with Title I funds. The Department of Title I Administration will conduct onsite visitations, at which time; the assignment schedules will be reviewed.

Moreover, for each of the periods indicated below, Principals are required to complete, sign, date, and electronically submit the Principal’s Assurance Certification of Staff Assignment (Appendix C of the Title I Hanbook, FM-7560), via the Title I School-level Compliance Collaboration Site. This will allow the Department of Title I Administration to determine whether the Title I program has been charged appropriately for time spent on Title I duties by employees paid under the program.
