NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR A TYDINGS WAIVER (FROM §421(b) OF THE GENERAL PROVISIONS
ACT) FOR THE TITLE I, 1003 SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT GRANT FUNDING
Waiver Request Letter
is hereby given that the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is requesting
a Tydings Waiver from the United States Department of Education pursuant to
§8401(b) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the
Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, the Georgia Department of Education
requests a Tydings Waiver applicable to Federal fiscal year (FY) 2017.
waiver request is consistent with ESSA section 1003(c), which indicates that
1003 subgrants may be awarded for a period of up to 4 years. The additional time afforded to LEAs by this
waiver is in the public interest because it would enable LEAs to ensure that
their CSI and TSI schools are able to use FY 2017 Title 1 1003 school
improvement funds to support full and effective implementation of selected
school improvement interventions. In the
absence of a waiver, sub-grants would be limited to the general 27-month period
of availability of Title I funds.
comments regarding the request for waiver must be submitted to Dr. Faya Paul by
e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org on or before September 20, 2019.
