• Equitable Shares- Private Schools

    The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was signed into law in 1965 and reauthorized as the Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2015. Titles IA and Title VIII of ESSA mandates provisions for private school students to receive access to equitable services for Title IA, IC, IIA, IIIA, IVA, and IVB. Officials use non-regulatory guidance (NRG) to determine how to ensure equitable services to private school students.
