     SPSA Status:

    Has your 2020-21 SPSA been fully approved?  If not, check to see you if you have received feedback from Title I, EL or PACE.  Were you asked to make revisions?  When are you going to finish the revisions?  Are you still waiting to hear from one of the programs regarding their feedback?

    Take care of all revisions quickly to prevent delays in getting your SPSA fully approved.  Communicate with the program Coordinator when revisions are finished and when you are unsure of what needs to be completed.  This is a team effort and we are all dedicated to ensuring that your SPSA is approved in a timely manner.

    Reminder:  Title I purchases, budget adjustments, and SPSA modifications can not be completed unless the 2020-21 SPSA has been fully approved by PACE, EL, Title I, the Community of Schools Administrator and Federal & State Educational Programs (FSEP).



    There is a new SPSA Modification Form for 2020-21.  Once your SPSA is fully approved and you are ready to make budget adjustments/SPSA modifications, use this new form only.  (Located under the header "2020-2021 School Plan for Student Achievement" on this page)



    2019-2020 SPSA Evaluation

    The 2019-2020 SPSA Evaluation located within the 2020-21 SPSA online template is due on or before October 31, 2020.

    Due to the lack of end of year data (result of school closures), all responses on the SPSA Evaluation should focus on student performance trends observed prior to the school closures.  Those trends inform whether or not students were on track to meet or not on track to meet measurable objectives.  In addition, focus on how strategies and positions purchased with Title I were being implemented and their effectiveness at that time.  Refer to guidance provided at the September 17, 2020 Title I Designee Meeting.


    Prior to submitting 2020-2021 Title I Budget Adjustments and SPSA Modifications, the school's 2020-2021 SPSA must be fully approved by the LD South EL Coordinator, PACE Administrator, Title I Coordinator, Community of Schools Administrator and then Federal and State Educational Programs.
