    B. Complete eGrants Application in August

Title i for nonpublic school students

How are services determined?

  • If they qualify as Poverty:Would the students attend a Title I school if they were to attend public school?

    • If No: then the students will not qualify for services.

    • If Yes: then they can receive monies

      If they can receive monies, then the student is tested to see if that student needs academic services.

      • If Yes: then the services are provided.

      • If No: then the services are not provided and monies are spent on other educationally eligible students at that same diocese school. Private schools would not receive monies.

  • So, when school opened in the fall, the district knew who they will serve and appropriate funds, accordingly.

Non-public schools provide the names of the students who are attending their school to the local school district.
