LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has released an update of Can Title I Pay for This? A Guide to Determining Allowable Costs. This updated resource by Tiffany Winters Kesslar, Esq. includes the tools and expert guidance you need to determine allowability of any Title I purchase — updated to incorporate ESSA’s new supplement, not supplant rules. A 9-point Allowability Checklist takes you through the steps to determining the allowability of a particular cost, from whether the item is necessary and reasonable to documenting compliance. Plus, from-the-field examples of purchases illustrate how to take an idea and check it for allowability, or alter its design so it is compliant.

Avoid audit or monitoring findings and, most importantly, get state approval for your initiatives, with guidance on:

  • How to apply ESSA’s new supplement, not supplant rules when spending Title I, Part A dollars.
  • When funds can be used for food during professional development and family and parent involvement events.
  • Purchases to raise academic achievement for homeless students.
  • Allowable rewards to recognize Title I students for good performance.

Can Title I Pay for This? A Guide to Determining Allowable Costs is available for purchase from LRP Publications’ online store.
