Federally Funded Programs for Students, Teachers, and Parents

Title I Program Improving Academic Achievement

website

The services for students are now determined by address and academic need.

Delivery Model is for: Private schools that generate Title I funds as determined by the Title I office may receive academic assistance for students who qualify for services. The Title I District office works with the private school in providing a certified teacher and/or computer technology to provide supplementary instruction.


The program uses a variety of instructional strategies and resources, including small group instruction and/or use of computer assisted instruction. The mainstream private school teacher initiates instruction and through consultation with the Title I teacher communicates skills to be reviewed by Title I. The Title I teacher or district representative reinforces these skills along with perquisite skills through direct instruction. For more information on these delivery models and how they can help your student population, please call Jessica Swere (Jessica.Swere@sdhc.k12.fl.us) at 272-4652.

ESE provides all exceptional students with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to realize their potential through the provision of individual specialized support. The goal of the School District of Hillsborough County is to provide equal opportunities for the identification, evaluation and education of exceptional students in the Least Restrictive Environment. This means that the school system is committed to offering a range of placement options using general education classrooms and adapting them to meet the needs of the exceptional student. The exceptional student will only be placed in a "special class" if his/her educational needs cannot be met in a general education classroom with the use of supplementary aids and/or services. Successful inclusion is achieved one child, one school, and one attitude at a time. For more information, please call Shannon Lesperance (Shannon.Lesperance@sdhc.k12.fl.us) at 273-7113.

Florida Department of Education

Under Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, LEAs are required to provide services for eligible public and private school students. In particular, Section 1120 requires a participating LEA to provide eligible children attending private elementary and secondary schools, their teachers, and their families with Title I services or other benefits that are equitable to those provided to eligible public school children, their teachers, and their families.

U.S. Department of Education
Public school districts are required to provide equitable services to eligible private school students through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) 2001, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), reauthorized 2004. Twelve major ESEA programs require public school districts to provide services and benefits to private school participants on an equitable basis. IDEA requires that public school districts conduct a child find process to locate students with disabilities enrolled by their parents in private schools, and to expend a proportionate amount of funding on special education and related services to such eligible children enrolled in private schools.
