A Summary of Alternative Strategies for Determining School District Title I Allocations: Volume IV of the Title I, ESEA, Subcounty Allocation Study.
This document contains a synthesized review of current State subcounty allocation procedures and assesses the impact and feasibility of four alternative allocation strategies. The review indicates that in the current subcounty allocation process, the United States Office of Education (USOE) uses a single formula to calculate county entitlements while State education agencies use a variety of formulas to divide the county allocations among school districts within each county. The four alternative allocation strategies are compared along six dimensions: (1) consistency of treatment of districts; (2) currency of data; (3) hold harmless effects; (4) States most affected and types of districts which would benefit; (5) data availability and feasibility; and (6) administrative complexity. Results of the comparisons are presented in detail. Each alternative is then summarized in terms of the advantages that would be gained or the disadvantages that would be incurred in their respective implementations. (Author/EB)
