JCPS Comprehensive School Improvement Planning - Budget

2010-11 Projected Budget Allocations:

After reviewing your school's budget allocations, please complete the required budget worksheets for each program listed below.


Budget Worksheets for the Flexible Focus Funds:

In order to give you maximum flexibility with your funds, the District is again providing schools the opportunity to decide how to distribute their combined Extended School Services (ESS), Professional Development (PD), and Textbooks (Elementary and Middle only) allocations.

Since the actual FY11 actual allocations are not yet known. . . Please be aware that these preliminary allocations are subject to change.

Prior to deciding how much funding to allocate to each program, please look at all of your funding sources (general fund, state and federal) and determine the best funding source for a given expense.

Instructions:

1. Complete the Flexible Focus Funds Summary Worksheet
2. Complete the ESS Worksheets
3. Complete the Textbooks Worksheets
4. Complete the PD Worksheet
5. Fax the completed worksheets to John Freeman at 3987 by March 12, 2010

IMPORTANT NOTES

Please use whole dollars only when allocating the funds.  If you use cents, the allocation will be rounded to the nearest whole dollar.

NOTE:  Although there currently is not a textbook allocation for schools, schools may still budget funds for textbooks as needed.

If you wait until close to the deadline (March 12, 2010) to fax the forms to John Freeman. . .  Please expect delays in the fax going through since many schools will be attempting to fax the forms at the same time.


FY11 Flexible Focus Fund (FFF) Summary Worksheet:

This worksheet is the summary of how your total FFF allocation is divided between the individual grants.

IMPORTANT NOTE

The allocation listed on the Summary Worksheet must match the allocation listed on the grant worksheets.  If they do not match, the grant worksheets will be changed to match the Summary Worksheet.


Extended School Services Worksheets:

All schools are allocated Extended School Service (ESS) funds based on a specific formula involving academic need, student population and the number of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch. Every school must have an ESS program for academically at-risk students needing additional instructional time to meet their academic goals (K-12). To qualify for services, a student must be performing below grade level in reading or math or endanger of failing.

ESS funds can be used to directly support the ESS program in the areas of teaching, instructional materials, student transportation, snacks, parent involvement and professional development related to the program. No funds may be used for the purposes of capital outlay or computer hardware.

Funds may be used for before school, after school, intersession, or Saturday programs. With the prior approval of KDE, funds may also be used for a daytime program. Every school's Comprehensive Plan must reference ESS and tell when the program will take place and how the program will be structured.

Below is the file containing the ESS Allocation Worksheet and Program Report. These two items are used to compile budget and program information required by KDE. These forms may be helpful to you as you plan for your ESS services. You may want to include the completed forms in your Comprehensive Plan (ESS should be embedded in your plan).

If you have Microsoft Excel, please use the Excel file. Using this file will make entering the budget very easy due to Excel calculating the totals and verifying that the allocation for incentives is correct.

If you do not have Microsoft Excel, please use the PDF version.  If you need any assistance with the files, please call the ESS office.

ESS School Allocation and Program Worksheets:

Please be aware that the total budget amount on the ESS Worksheet MUST MATCH the amount on the Flexible Focus Fund Summary Worksheet.  If it does not match, then amount on the ESS Worksheet WILL BE CHANGED to match the amount listed on the Flexible Focus Fund Summary Worksheet.

If you have questions regarding how to complete the worksheets or the proper use of the funding, please contact Chuck Gilkey at 6605.


Textbook Worksheets:

The following links provide forms to be used in the development of a school's purchasing plan. Every school's purchasing plan must be submitted to the district office for approval by the local school board and then kept on file. It is recommended that a school's purchasing plan be a part of its School Comprehensive Improvement Plan. A school's purchasing plan must:

1.      Provide opportunities for cooperation among teachers during the selection process

2.      Indicate the persons involved in the development of the plan on the "Cover Page"

3.      Stay within the funding allocation

4.      Include a completed "Budget Summary"

5.      Include a complete "Statement of Accountability"

Forms to facilitate the transfer of textbooks between schools, document lost and paid textbooks and the sale of obsolete textbooks to vendors follow:

NOTE: Although there currently is not a textbook allocation for schools, schools may wish to use available Flexible Focus Funds for textbook purchases.

The total budget amount on the Textbooks Budget Summary Worksheet MUST MATCH the amount on the Flexible Focus Fund Summary Worksheet.  If it does not match, then amount on the Textbooks Budget Summary Worksheet WILL BE CHANGED to match the amount listed on the Flexible Focus Fund Summary Worksheet.

Even though textbook funding may not be available, the Purchasing Plan Forms (A, B or B-1, and C) must be completed and returned by Friday, March 12, 2010 to John Freeman at the Gheens Academy or faxed to 3987. If you have questions regarding how to complete the forms, contact Paul Lanata at 3090.

Professional Development funds must be used to provide “high quality professional development”, which is defined as “Those experiences that systematically, over a sustained period of time, enable educators to facilitate the learning of students by acquiring and applying knowledge, understanding, skills, and abilities that address the instructional improvement goals of the school district, the individual school, or the individual professional growth needs of the educator.”

  • Register! Budget Work Sessions
    • Information regarding the Title I Budget Work Sessions

  • Allocation Worksheet 
    • The staff salaries and the total budget amount will be automatically transferred to this worksheet.

  • New! Sample Budget Narrative
    • Information regarding the budget narrative.
  • Budget Narrative 
    • Exactly as you have done in years past, enter the “Explanation of Expenditures” for each of the categories. Please remember that narrative information should correspond to staff positions. For example, if a resource teacher is listed on the staffing worksheet, explanation of the expenditure for this position should be addressed in the budget narrative. Also, please identify the NCLB goals that your 2010-2011 CSIP will address. Note: This year the term “instructional coach” cannot be used as this is not an official JCPS job title with a job description. Please use the term “teacher” or “resource teacher” who will be assigned instructional coaching responsibilities. Resource teachers should not have a regularly assigned full student load. This will help to prevent individuals from being placed in the wrong position number. Please note that resource teachers must have the appropriate certification on file. For additional information on the certification required for resource teachers please contact Harriet Dawson at ext. 7458.
  • Budget Information 
    • This worksheet contains the budget allocations for each Title I school.

If you need assistance with completing the Excel worksheet, please call the Title I office at 3004.  If you are unable to use Excel, please use the PDF versions of the worksheets.  After filling out the staff and operational budget information, please fax the worksheets to the Title I office so that the fringes can be calculated.  After the fringes have been calculated, the worksheets will be faxed back to you for your approval and signature.

Please email the completed budget worksheets to jennifer.crask@jefferson,kyschools.us by March 12, 2010 from the principal’s email account.  This email will serve as the electronic signature.
