2018-2019 Consolidated Application for ESSA-Funded Programs

Executive Summary        

NYSED has developed the online 2018-19 Consolidated Application for ESSA-Funded Programs to support the timely administration of ESSA-funded programs to local educational agencies (LEAs) across the state.

The online applications including the Consolidated Application for ESSA-Funded Programs, Title I School Improvement Grants and other surveys are available to LEAs through the NYSED Business Portal.


The online application tool has been updated so that all of the calculations that were performed last year in the budget calculator tool can now be done in the application itself. As you enter allocation and student count data, the online application will update per pupil rates and required set-asides in real-time. For the purposes of equitable services determinations, we have provided the “2018-2019 Private School Consultation Resource”, which contains a sortable list of private schools, to help LEAs identify which private schools should be consulted for equitable services programming.

The counts provided in the “2018-2019 Private School Consultation Resource” are based on 2017-2018 BEDS reporting. The counts are intended to provide LEAs with a list of private schools that reporting serving district-resident students the previous year and, therefore, should be approached for consultation purposes. When making determinations about 2018-2019 equitable services amounts, LEAs may use more updated student counts for both public and private schools if such data is available.
