The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires equitable services to be provided to private schools. Why? Federal programs are supported by tax dollars, therefore all children and teachers are eligible to access these programs. 2
The school district must notify the private school of the opportunity. Best Practice: The private school can complete and submit a consultation form. KDE has developed a template that districts may use during the consultation process. It’s located on the KDE website. 3
Consultation is a collaborative process between the Title II, Part A coordinator and the private school official(s )

A formula is used to determine private school services based on an equitable per pupil rate. The district must reserve no less than this amount of their Title II Part A grant. This formula determines an amount for budgeting purposes and should not be viewed as an allocation.
Step 1: Public Enrollment Participating PNP/Private Total Enrollment (previous year) Enrollment (previous year) 1303 + 50_ = _ 1353_
School Dist. Enrollment Participating PNP/Private Total Enrollment (previous year ) Enrollment (previous year) 1303 + _ 50_ = _ 1353_ Step 2: Title II Dist. PD Amt. or Total Enrollment Per Pupil Amt. Eisenhower Amt. (which ever is greater) $ 49,706 ÷ _1353 = _36.7376_ (Carry 4 decimal places)
School Dist. Enrollment Participating PNP/Private Total Enrollment (previous year ) Enrollment (previous year) 1303 + _ 50_ = _ 1353_ Title II Dist. PD Amt. or Total Enrollment Per Pupil Amt. Eisenhower Amt. (which ever is greater) $ 49,706 ÷ _1353 = _36.7376_ (Carry 4 decimal places) Step 3: Per Pupil Allocation Participating PNP Total Private Allocation Enrollment $ 36.7376 x _ 2 _ = $73.48_
Annually school districts must provide equitable services to private non-profit schools and oversee the process. They shall: Notify private schools of the opportunity Provide a consultation & planning process Require a needs assessment Require an evaluation of the program Keep appropriate records
