Instructions: Other ESEA Nonprofit Participation

Consolidated Application, Spring Release program instructions for the 2013-14 Other Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Nonprofit Private School Participation.
Data Collection Purpose

The local educational agency (LEA) must offer to provide equitable services that address the needs of nonprofit private school students, teachers, and other educational personnel under the programs listed. This completed data entry form, along with the LEA’s records of contact and consultation, will serve to document that the nonprofit private schools were contacted and made decisions regarding whether to participate in Title II, Part A (Teacher Quality) and/or Title III, Part A, limited English proficient (LEP).

Note for unified school districts: this data collection will not display if there are no nonprofit private schools in the LEA attendance area.
Guidance

If you believe that a school on the list is actually located in another LEA, contact your County Office of Education (COE) for a determination, and have COE staff e-mail the name and address of the school and the correct LEA to privateschools@cde.ca.gov.

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, at lnelson@cde.ca.gov or 916-319-0229. 

The ESEA Title IX, Uniform Provisions External link opens in new window or tab. (DOC) 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. These records should document both the participating nonprofit private schools and those choosing not to participate in ESEA services.

Non-unified school districts (i.e., elementary and high school districts) may opt to share responsibility for providing equitable Title II, Part A services for an eligible private school whose grade span includes both elementary and high school students. To accommodate this, an elementary or high school district may add a shared attendance area school using the "Add a School" button. If this option is chosen, the total private school enrollment will appear on both districts’ forms. Districts may wish to refer to the Private School Affidavit on file at the Private School Affidavit Search Web page to determine the number of students enrolled by grade span.

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.

Preloaded Data

School Name and School Code: These are displayed using source data from the California School Directory Web page. The list of private schools will be updated weekly to include Private School Affidavits filed by nonprofit private schools after the initial release of Consolidated Application, so LEAs should check for additional eligible schools.

Enrollment: The 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 California Department of Education takes no position as to its accuracy.
