Greetings! I hope you are all getting some time to enjoy the summer.

The IDEA Consolidated 2015-16 grant ends September 30, so here is a reminder of the upcoming deadlines. The last opportunity to do an amendment is September 1, the last date to obligate funds is September 30, and the last day to liquidate funds is October 31.  The Final Expenditure Report is due November 10, 2016. Don’t forget that 2014-15 funds expire if they are not used.  The 2015-16 funds do rollover 100 percent, but the 2014-15 funds DO NOT ROLLOVER, they expire.

For questions, please contact Leisa Blanton at or at 406-444-4403.
