Equitable Participation in Title I for Private School Students

The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) (20 U.S.C. § 6301) requires districts to provide eligible children attending private elementary and secondary schools, as well as their teachers and families, with Title I services or other benefits—such as professional development, family engagement, or materials and supplies (on loan from the public schools)—that are equitable to those provided to eligible public school children and their teachers and families. To be eligible for Title I services, a private school child must reside in a public Title I school attendance area and be determined to be in need of additional academic support.
