Dear Select Private School Directors:

2022–23 Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant:
Private School Participation

Under Title III, Part A, Section 3114(d)(1) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, the California Department of Education (CDE) is required to set aside funds to provide subgrant awards to local educational agencies (LEAs) that meet eligibility requirements for participation in the Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant. You are receiving this letter because the LEA, under which jurisdiction your private school belongs, is eligible for Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant funding. Therefore, your private school may request to receive Title III products and services for your immigrant students from the LEA.

Based on eligible immigrant student enrollment data reported on the 2021−22 Student National Origin Report, your private school is eligible to receive Title III products and services from your LEA for eligible immigrant students. To accept or decline participation in the Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant, your private school must engage in meaningful consultation with your respective LEA. To view a list of private schools, the number of eligible immigrant students, and their corresponding LEAs eligible for the 2022−23 Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant funding, please visit the CDE Request for Applications Title III Language Instruction for Immigrant Students web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/fo/r28/imm22rfa.asp.

If your private school would like to receive the products and services, please submit a request to participate to the LEA under which jurisdiction your private school belongs, and begin collaborating to create a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the provision of products and services to eligible immigrant students in your private school during the 2022–23 school year. The MOU should contain at a minimum, a description of the services to be provided to eligible immigrant students, the estimated cost of those services, and the expected dates of their provision.

LEAs may not allocate Title III funds directly to private schools, but instead, the LEA must provide services and products to eligible immigrant students enrolled in the private schools.

Please note if the LEA that has jurisdiction elects not to participate in the Title III Immigrant Student Program, or does not meet eligibility criteria, your private school will not receive any program services.

For detailed information on private school consultation process, participation and provision of equitable services, please visit the CDE Equitable Services Ombudsman web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/sw/t1/ombudsmaneqservices.asp.

For more information about private schools and Title III services, please visit the CDE Title III Immigrant Private School web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/el/t3/immprivschool.asp.

If you have any questions regarding the Title III Immigrant Student Program Subgrant, Private School Participation, please contact Geoffrey Ndirangu, Education Programs Consultant, Language Policy and Leadership Office, by phone at 916-323-5831 or by email at Gndirang@cde.ca.gov.
