Instructions: Title IV Nonprofit Participation

Consolidated Application Spring Release instructions for the 2019–20 Title IV, Part A Nonprofit Private School Participation data collection.
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 IV, Part A Student Support.

Note: This data collection will not display if the LEA did not apply for Title IV funding, is a county office of education or direct funded charter, or did not complete the Nonprofit Private School Consultation form.

Guidance

The Title IX, Part E Uniform Provisions federal guidance web document External link opens in new window or tab. (DOC) on the U.S. Department of Education Policy Overview, 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 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) services.

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.
