Private Schools


Under Title IA, Local Education Agencies are required to provide services for eligible private school students, as well as eligible public school students.

The Title I services for private school students are developed in consultation with officials of the private schools. The Title I services provided are designed to meet their education needs and supplement the educational services provided by the private school.

The amount of Title I funds allocated to each participating public school attendance area is determined mainly on the basis of the total number of low-income students, both public and private, residing in each area.

Private school students generate Title I funds if they meet poverty criteria, live in the district, and live in a public school attendance area that receives Title I funds.

Private schools receiving Title IIA funds must conduct a needs assessment identifying their students’ academic needs. This assessment will be used as a basis for professional development activities. Below is a needs assessment form, for use by private schools, to develop a professional development plan.

Similarly, private schools utilizing Title IA funds must gather assessment information for use in developing a plan for delivering Title I services to identified students. The assessment also includes an evaluation plan that allows for a review of the program, in relation to annual progress measures, and subsequent modifications to meet targets and improve student achievement.

Title IA Needs Assessment and Plan:

The Local Education Agency (LEA) is required to conduct regular consultations with private schools receiving Title funds. As such, a general consultation cycle was developed to provide guidance through this annual process. Attached, please find the cycle used by the Eugene 4j School District. This cycle is a guide and may be adjusted to meet the needs of involved parties, on occasion.
