SPPS provides services in three areas under ESEA:
The SPPS Title I department provides services to 13 non public schools with an eligible population of approximately 650 children. Currently, a staff of highly qualified public school teachers and teacher assistants provide on-site tutoring to eligible students with the greatest educational needs.
Title III: These are supplemental language instruction services to teach English to limited English proficient and immigrant students as well as assist them in achieving grade-level and graduation standards. Professional development services can also be provided to private school staff to support them in serving English learners. The SPPS Multilingual Learning (MLL) department oversees Title III at Non Public schools.
All of these services are planned and provided through meaningful consultation with private school officials. Together, district personnel and private school officials determine what services best meet the needs of participating children and staff.
All equitable services under No Child Left Behind are secular, neutral, and non-ideological. All goods and materials used for equitable services for private schools are the property of the district.
