ISBE DELL e-Broadcast 2010.176 - FY11 eGMS Consolidated Bilingual Program Application

The FY11 Consolidated English Language Learning Programs Application for state TBE/TPI and federal Title III (LIPLEPS and IEP) funding will be completed and submitted electronically online via eGMS this school year.  Please join ISBE’s Division of English Learning staff for a training webinar that will present information on accessing and completing Submission Part I of the new electronic consolidated application. 

The FY11 eGMS Consolidated English Language Learning Application is divided into two (2) submissions, Part I  The ELL Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator and Part II The ELL Program Service Plan and Budgets

  1. The ELL Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator is scheduled to be available online by February 8, 2010 and data submissions due to ISBE by March 15, 2010.  An announcement will go out to districts on IWAS informing them that the system is available for data submission.

  2. The ELL Program Service Plan and Budgets is scheduled to be posted online by May 2010 and data submissions due to ISBE by June 30th 2010.  Only those districts that complete the ELL Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator will be eligible to apply for FY11 funding by submitting the ELL Program Service Plan and Budgets.

The FY11 application submission and approval process will all be done online. The Excel-based consolidated application forms used in previous years will no longer be available on the ISBE website.

To assist school districts with the eGMS application, a technical assistance workshop via webinar for Part I has been scheduled for February 17, 2010 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30.  A second webinar for the Part II submission is scheduled for May 14.  Both sessions will be recorded and posted on the DELL website www.isbe.net/bilingual Being that this is the first year of implementation; we strongly encourage anyone responsible for the submission of the application, including program coordinators and directors, to participate in this training.
