Explain if the status of the Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) Summer Adventures in Learning program has changed at Twinbrook Elementary School.

Question#: 37

ANSWER:

In February 2011 the Board was notified that available Title I funding would support Title I at 23 schools for the 2011-2012 school year. These schools were at or above the FARMS rate of 65.63 percent. This was based on preliminary information received from the state that we should assume Title I funding for FY 2012 would be the same as the amount received in FY 2011. As a result, Twinbrook Elementary School, with a 63.86 percent FARMS rate, lost its Title I status for FY 2012. (See chart A attached)

In June 2011, the Board was notified that the Title I, allocation for FY 2012 was $20,577,174, a $2,707,640 increase from the FY 2011 budgeted allocation of $17,869,534. As a result, Twinbrook and Burnt Mills elementary schools were added to the list of Title I schools and became eligible for the ELO program.

The Title I schools for the 2012-2013 school year will be identified when MCPS establishes the FARMs cut-off based on projected funding from MSDE. If Twinbrook Elementary School is within the eligible range, it will qualify as a Title I school and will participate in the ELO program.
