 Consolidation of Funds


​​​​​The Georgia Department of Education and school districts across Georgia are conducting the Consolidation​ of Funds Initiative to fully consolidate federal, state, and local funds in specific Title I schools that operate schoolwide programs. Once these funds are consolidated, the federal funds lose their identity as federal funds, and expenditures of those funds are no longer limited to the federal requirements for individual programs. A schoolwide pr​​ogram school that consolidates federal program funds “is not required to meet most statutory or regulatory requirements of the program applicable at the school level, but must meet the intent and purposes of that program to ensure that the needs of the intended beneficiaries are met." 

If you are interested in more information regarding Consolidation of Funds, please reach out to our staff at consolidation@doe.k12.ga.us. ​ ​​​​
