Planning amounts for the 2011-2012 school year have been calculated for the IDEA-B Discretionary Deaf Grant Application. Local educational agencies (LEAs) may select from two consolidated reports to locate their preliminary planning amounts. One report is sorted alphabetically by LEA name and the other is sorted by Educational Service Center Region number and alphabetically by LEA. The reports are as of June 9, 2011 and are subject to change. If you have any questions regarding the planning amounts, please contact the Division of Formula Funding at 512-463-8525.
