Under several programs included in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), local education agencies (LEAs) are required to provide services for eligible private school students and teachers. The resources provided on this page will assist LEAs in meeting the statutory requirements.
Equitable Services Worksheet
TEA has developed a spreadsheet to ensure that LEAs calculate the appropriate amounts for equitable services. LEAs with participating private non-profit schools must complete and submit this spreadsheet annually along with their private school affirmations. This worksheet is available for download through the NCLB Reports application on the TEA Secure Environment (TEASE). It contains instructions for calculating the appropriate amounts for Title I, Part A; Title I, Part C; Title II, Part A; and Title III, Part A. LEAs should upload the completed worksheet through the NCLB Reports application on TEASE via TEAL no later than October 3, 2016.
Private School Affirmations
In accordance with the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, LEAs are required to consult with participating private nonprofit schools to determine equitable services for private school students and/or teachers [P.L. 110-107, Section 1120(a)(1); 5142(a)(1); and 9501(a)(1)]. LEAs must complete an affirmation of consultation with private school officials and must be able to provide auditable documentation that demonstrates appropriate consultation occurred. The LEA is responsible for the administrative oversight of the ESEA program(s) in the private nonprofit school. LEAs should complete one affirmation per participating private nonprofit school. The affirmation template is available for download through the NCLB Reports application on the TEASE via TEAL.
LEAs should sign and scan completed affirmations and upload them through the NCLB Reports application on TEASE via TEAL no later than October 3, 2016.
