These services must be equitable to the services provided for students in public schools. The specific requirements are stated in the Legal Assurances, under ESEA, Participation of Nonprofit Private School Students.
Additional information and resources including the “Title I Services to Eligible Private School Children Non-Regulatory Guidance” and “Toolkit” are found under Services to Private Schools on the CDE Private Schools Web page.The LEAs must maintain and provide to the CDE upon request, a written affirmation signed by the officials of the participating private schools that the consultation required by ESEA Title I, Part A, Section 1120 (b) has occurred.
