SUBJECT: Compliance Report- PR7000 Private Nonprofit School Participation for School Year 2016–2017 - ISDs Only
The 2016–2017 PR7000 Private Nonprofit School Participation Report is now available to independent school districts (ISDs) in eGrants. Note that the PR7000 is not applicable to open-enrollment charter schools, South Texas ISD, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Texas School for the Deaf, Texas Juvenile Justice Department, or Windham School District.
All other ISDs must report compliance with private nonprofit school participation for applicable No Child Left Behind (NCLB) federal programs by submitting the PR7000 in eGrants no later than 5:00 p.m. Central Time, April 3, 2017, the deadline date.
Submission of the PR7000 in eGrants is required even if private nonprofit schools chose not to participate in applicable 2016–2017 NCLB federal programs or there are no existing private nonprofit schools located within the ISD boundaries. In addition, ISDs that are members of shared services arrangements (SSAs) for any applicable NCLB federal programs are required to submit their own PR7000 in eGrants. Data reported in the PR7000 will be used to determine Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) funding for 2017-2018.
