Data Collection Purpose
To identify private nonprofit schools that the LEA will provide with Title II, Part A (Teacher Quality) and/or Title III LEP funded services.
Note: this data collection will not display if there are no nonprofit private schools in the LEA attendance area.
The completed data entry form, along with the LEA’s records of contact, will serve as certification that the nonprofit private schools listed were contacted and either chose to participate in Title II, Part A (Teacher Quality); or Title III, Part A (LEP); or declined participation in Title II, Part D (Technology).
If you believe that a school on the list is actually located in another district, please contact your County Office of Education (COE) for a determination as to the correct district of location. If the private school should indeed be listed on another LEA’s application, or if you have questions about a private school that appears on, or is missing from, your LEA’s private school list, please contact Laura Nelson, Associate Governmental Programs Analyst.
The ESEA Title IX, Uniform Provisions federal guidance outlines mandated consultation between LEAs and eligible private schools. The LEA records should include dates of contact, persons contacted, and the results of such contacts with each nonprofit private school or Nonpublic, nonsectarian school (NPS). These records should document both participating nonprofit private schools and those choosing not to participate.

School Name and School Code (found in the California School Directory Database): Use the Private School Database for a final search to identify any additional eligible private schools that filed after May 2012. Contact Laura Nelson, Associate Governmental Programs Analyst, regarding adding them. Access to the Affidavits filed annually by California private schools requires a county password. To get your county’s (or a contiguous county’s) password, send an email to email@example.com; or contact Laura Nelson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The enrollment numbers are reported under penalty of perjury by each private school on its annual Private School Affidavit. The information filed in the Private School Affidavit is not verified, and the CDE takes no position as to its accuracy. It is expected that districts engaged in private school consultation verify nonprofit status and the accuracy of student enrollment data if it is being used for the purpose of providing equitable services. If a discrepancy is found, the district should notify the CDE by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. These data are stored in the California School Directory Database.
