Allowability Under ESSA – Consolidation & Transferability
More than three years after it was signed into law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) continues to cause problems for State and local educational agencies. The various programs under the law have many unanswered questions that could still lead to audit liabilities down the road. Two complicated topics focus on the consolidation and transferability of various funds authorized under ESSA. School-wide consolidation of funds seems like a daunting prospect for many States and districts, but the rules on consolidation allow for considerable flexibility when it comes to allowable use of funds. ESSA also allows for the consolidation of administrative funds. Likewise, the Title V transferability provisions of the law allow SEAs and LEAs the opportunity to shift funds based on the needs of students. This session will focus on the statutory and regulatory requirements for consolidation and transferring funds under ESSA.
