That Superintendent's Recommendation #20-36, Grant Increase, be adopted as follows: that the School Committee accept and approve the grant increase in the amount and for the period indicated:

FY20 Title I Distribution (SC20604) INCREASE in the amount of $1.380.00 for the period September 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020

Description: The Title I grant will fund additional teaching staff at four elementary and two upper schools. Intervention teachers at Kennedy Longfellow, King Open, Morse and FMA will provide ELA and Math intervention and targeted support to at-risk students. At CSUS, Title I will fund a Reading Interventionist; and at Putnam Ave, a Math Interventionist. The grant also funds two part-time Reading Recovery lead teachers who provide professional development for district, early literacy interventionists, a .75 family liaison, a .6 clerk, and the Title I Coordinator. It also provides stipends for after-school and summer school programs, services for homeless students, professional development, parent involvement, printing and supplies, as well as services to eligible students in private schools.

This amendment includes a transfer from salaries to stipends for summer school made possible by transferring part of the Reading Recovery lead teachers' salaries to the Early Literacy Intervention grant (SC20632). The increase of $1,380 will be used for supplies for the summer program.
