Title II, Part A - Private Schools Program Equitable Services
Title II, Part A is a program that ensures private schools receive equitable services in comparison to those provided to public schools. This includes providing private school teachers, principals, and other educational personnel with the same educational services as their public school counterparts. This program was established under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and was strengthened and enhanced by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. Educational services provided under this program must be secular, neutral, and non-ideological and private school officials must be consulted in a timely and meaningful manner. Additionally, the expenditures for private school children, teachers, and other educational personnel must be equal to those for public school children.
