Entitlements for the 2012-2013 NCLB Title I School Improvement Program (SIP) Grant Application are available and may be viewed through the links below. This year, reports are separated into two categories – campuses in Stage 1 Year 1 of school improvement and campuses in Stage 1 Year 2 and Above. For each category, local educational agencies (LEAs) may select from two consolidated reports to locate their entitlements. One report is sorted alphabetically by LEA name, and the other is sorted by education service center (ESC) region number and alphabetically by LEA. The reports are as of October 16, 2012, and are subject to change. If you have any questions regarding the entitlement amounts, please contact the Division of Grants Administration at (512) 463-8525.

Title I campuses that have not met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the same indicator (reading, mathematics, attendance rate, or graduation rate) for two consecutive years are identified for Title I SIP and are eligible to apply for this grant. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released preliminary AYP results on August 8, 2012.
The application will be effective on September 10, 2012, or the date it is received by TEA, whichever is later. Pre-award costs for existing SIP campuses will be allowed back to July 1, 2012. Pre-award costs for newly identified SIP campuses will be allowed back to August 1, 2012. Pre-award costs will be allowed once requested and approved by TEA as reflected in the grant application. The ending date for the Title I SIP grant program is September 30, 2013.
2012-2013 NCLB Title I SIP Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC)
For LEAs that have not begun the application process, the 2012-2013 NCLB Title I SIP ADC form is available in eGrants and is populated with the planning amounts for eligible campuses. The 2012-2013 NCLB Title I SIP ADC form initiates the application process for programs in the 2012-2013 NCLB Title I SIP Grant Application. Eligible applicants use the ADC form to identify how they will apply in the grant application for each funding source. The information that is submitted on this form is considered to be binding. Applicants are advised to complete the process of obtaining local board approval, as appropriate, and ensure accuracy before submitting the form. The NCLB Title I SIP ADC form, once certified and submitted by eligible applicants, will activate the 2012-2013 NCLB Title I SIP Grant Application.

Eligible applicants must apply through the eGrants system. To apply, applicants must have appropriate Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEASE) access.
