FY2024 Declaration of Participation Notification
It is time for the Declaration of Participation Report to be completed by your district in accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This report is used to identify the number of students enrolled in area private non-profit and home schools. Federal programs participating in the Declaration of Participation are Title II-A Supporting Effective Instruction, Title III - Language Instruction for English Learners (EL), Title IV-A Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants and IDEA-B - Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
The data collected from the Declaration of Participation Forms collected from the private and home schools located within the district geographic boundaries should be entered into the Declaration of Participation Report within GMAP via Funding | Application | Application Supplements | FY2024. To access the report, the appropriate staff must have the role of Declaration of Participation Report Submitter. Contact the district's GMAP User Access Administrator to add the role. A list of the district GMAP User Access Administrators is in GMAP under KDE Resources.
The FY2024 Declaration of Participation is due to be completed in GMAP by April 14, 2023.

Documents pertaining to Declaration of Participation:
Transferability is the flexibility authority that permits State Educational Agencies (SEAs) and Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) the ability to transfer a portion of the funding they receive, by formula under certain Federal program, to allocations under other programs by effectively addressing more specifically identified programmatic needs.
- Coordination of federal program support can help maximize the impact of available resources to districts.
- Encourage districts to re-examine the way they spend federal K-12 formula grants to support student achievement by engaging federal grant staff, programs/offices supported by federal grants, and fiscal staff across the district. Assembling staff across the district that are touched by federal funds, including academic, programmatic, and fiscal staff, is important to ensure the agency develops cohesive policies.
