The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) amends several federal programs of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act which contain equitable services requirements for private schools. Your school may be eligible to participate in the following federal programs: Title I, Part A - Education for the Disadvantaged, Title II, Part A – Improving Teaching and Student Learning and Achievement, Title III, Part A - English Language Acquisition, Title IV, Part A - Student Support and Academic Enrichment and Title IV, Part B - 21st Century Community Learning Centers. RIDE will provide private school officials with information related to equitable services in federal programs for which private schools may be eligible to participate.
*Participation is limited to no more than two (2) participants per private school. We encourage you to share this invitation with other private schools or with private school professional associations who may have an interest in this topic.
