Instructions: Other ESEA Nonprofit Participation

Consolidated Application, Spring Release program instructions for the 2017–18 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), Title III, Part A Immigrant, and or Title III, Part A Limited English Proficient (English Learner).

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


Guidance

The Title IX, Part E Uniform Provisions federal guidance on the U.S. Department of Education (ED) Policy Overview External link opens in new window or tab. (DOC) Web document 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 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. Districts may wish to refer to the Private School Affidavit on file with the California Department of Education (CDE), using the Private Schools Affidavit Search Web page to determine the number of students enrolled by grade span.

Refer to the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) Training and User Documents User Guide (DOC; 7 MB) for Add a School instructions.

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.
