Title III EL Nonprofit School Reimbursement

Consolidated Application, Spring Release program instructions for the 2019–20 Title III English Learner (EL) Nonprofit Private School Reimbursement data collection.
Data Collection Purpose

To capture the documented number of nonprofit private school English learner (EL) students who received Title III services from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.

If no nonprofit private school students were served in 2019–20, then please indicate "0" for that nonprofit private school. The local educational agency (LEA) will be reimbursed for the number of nonprofit private school students served in 2019–20 using 2020–21 apportionment funds, as reported on this data collection.

Title III English Learner Nonprofit Private School Reimbursement is dependent on the same fiscal year’s Other Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Nonprofit Private School Participation data collection.

The system will display all nonprofit private schools in the LEA’s attendance area that have signed written affirmations on file, per the Nonprofit Private School Consultation form.

Guidance

LEAs that receive a Title III EL Student Program Subgrant are required to serve EL students enrolled in nonprofit private schools whenever the administration of a particular nonprofit private school requests to participate in the program.

The LEA must, after timely and meaningful consultation with appropriate nonprofit private school officials, provide equitable services that address the needs of nonprofit private school students and staff under this program. Refer to the 2019–20 Consolidated Application Program Guidance section on the California Department of Education (CDE) Consolidated Application web page for more information regarding ESEA participation and reporting of students in nonprofit private schools.

To ensure that equitable services were delivered to eligible students under Title III, the LEA must report the number of nonprofit private school students receiving services in the 2019–20 year. For more information, see the CDE Title III EL Student Program Private Schools web page.
