For Districts - 2016-17 Amendments for Master Agreements for Matching Funds and Technical Assistance Funds
The division has established a master agreement for district matching funds and technical assistance funds with each district to cover fiscal years 2014-15 through 2017-18. The General Assembly has now approved the state budget for FY 2016-17, so beginning in August the Division will begin processing amendments to the agreement to include the 2016-17 matching and technical assistance funds allocated by the Commission. There are no other substantive changes to the agreement initiated in 2014.
Each district will need to submit an updated Secondary Employment Certification Form as referenced in Section V of the agreement.
Once each district's contract amendment has been fully executed, the district can submit its matching funds request, quarterly technical assistance billing and quarterly progress reporting (refer to the Scope of Work, to see the quarterly invoicing deadlines (Attachment A). For 2016-17, the Matching Funds Application Form has been converted to an Excel spreadsheet form and added as the third tab on the Technical Assistance Billing Form.
