Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Equitable Services for Eligible Private Schools

Monday, June 3, 2019

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 information regarding the amount of funds allocated for equitable services under Title I, Part A, Section 1117 and each covered program under Section 8501(b) determined to be available for eligible private school students, teachers and other educational personnel, and families. Final allocations will be determined in accordance with the ESEA methodology and distributed to the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) once DCPS has submitted an approvable application for federal funds.
