Instructions: Title I Nonprofit Participation

Consolidated Application, Spring Release program instructions for the 2017–18 Title I, Part A Nonprofit Private School Participation.
Data Collection Purpose

To identify nonprofit private schools that will participate in Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, Part A services.

Note: This data collection will not display if the local educational agency (LEA) did not apply for Title I, Part A funding, is a county offices of education (COEs) or Direct Funded Charters, or did not complete the Nonprofit Private School Consultation form.


Guidance

The ESEA, Title I, Part A, Section 1120 requires LEAs to provide supplemental educational services to eligible students attending nonprofit private schools. These equitable services must be comparable to the services provided for students in public schools.

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 Title I Services for Students in 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.

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 privateschools@cde.ca.gov. Additional information (including a link to the Private School Directory) is available on the CDE Private Schools Web page.

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.
