On April 13, SECC participated in an OFP FY 17 Consolidated Federal Programs Application regional training. The goal of the training was to provide instructional support to guide program development focused on a direct alignment of student needs, intervention, and expected outcomes. MDE provided an in-depth review of the CFPA, including Title I, Part A, parental involvement, private school services, priority/focus schools, neglected/ delinquent services, Title II, and budgetary practices. MDE and SECC also participated in an April 26 conference call to plan the OFP Strategic Planning Retreat, to be conducted May 10–11. During the call, the Strategic Planning Retreat agenda was developed. Also, the May 2–3 Steering Committee Work Session #9 was discussed. Additionally at OFP’s request, SECC, as a Federal Programs Steering Committee member, participated in an April 26 SIG webinar to discuss the details and new requirements outlined in the new SIG application.
