Supplement-Not-Supplant – “Sorry Not Sorry”

Supplement-Not-Supplant – “Sorry Not Sorry”

February 20, 2019

Marguerite Roza writes in this Brookings piece that “new draft guidance the U.S. Department of Education released last month on monitoring the ‘supplement-not-supplant’ provision [of Title I] might be perceived as the current administration issuing a big sorry not sorry to equity advocates.” According to Roza, “Those of us who interact with districts routinely hear district leaders describe how they add extra funds for non-Title I schools precisely ‘because they don’t get Title I.’ That’s a clear violation of the law. Let’s hope districts can hear it.”
