2015 Federal Funding Conference

The 2015 Federal Funding Conference, a collaboration between DPI, WASBO and WCASS, will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 17 and Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015 at the Kalahari Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells. Additional information is available at http://www.wasbo.com/federalfunding.
 
This year's conference will focus on the new Omni-Circular, which is an overhaul of the prior federal grant rules and impacts everything from allowable costs to the single audit. The Omni-Circular also moves away from strictly dealing with compliance and into performance based measurements, which could be used to align with Wisconsin's implementation of "Promoting Excellence for All."
 
School districts are strongly encouraged to send a team of individuals representing Title I or ESEA, Special Education and the Business Office. Past attendees have reflected that those who brought a team representing all three areas left with a stronger connection to the content, whereas those districts that only sent one individual commented that they really wished that their colleagues had attended as well.
