Supplement, Not Supplant

Boston Public Schools operates schoolwide Title I programs. To demonstrate Supplement, Not Supplant, schoolwide programs must:
  1. show that Federal funds used with the school are paying for additional services that would not otherwise be provided; 
  2. demonstrate that Federal funds are used only for specific target populations; or 
  3. separately track Federal program funds once they reach the school. 
A schoolwide program school, however, must use Title I funds only to supplement the amount of funds that would, in the absence of the Title I funds, be made available from non-Federal sources for that school, including funds needed to provide services that are required by law for children with disabilities and children with limited English proficiency.
The Boston Public Schools works with each Principal and Central Office Department Head to assure that all Title I spending meets Supplement, Not Supplant and closely monitors Title I spending.
