Equitable Services for Eligible Private Schools

Friday, August 18, 2017

The ESEA requires OSSE and LEAs to provide equitable services to eligible private school students, teachers, and other educational personnel. Specifically, services for eligible private school students, teachers, and other school personnel must be 1) appropriately funded in accordance with allocation requirements, and 2) developed in consultation with officials of the private schools. In addition, families of eligible private school students must be allowed to participate, on an equitable basis, in the parent and family engagement activities of ESEA Title I, Part A.

The purpose of this letter is to provide you with several key updates regarding the implementation of equitable services in DC.
