Public Notice - Tydings Waiver Request

PUBLIC 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

Notice 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.

This 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.

All comments regarding the request for waiver must be submitted to Dr. Faya Paul by e-mail at fpaul@doe.k12.ga.us on or before September 20, 2019.
