Private School Federal Funding Consultation

BCISD has the responsibility to contact all private schools within the district boundaries that might have students eligible to participate in certain federal programs, including the Every Student Succeeds Act programs and the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief program.

BCISD also has a responsibility to contact private schools outside the district if we have reason to believe students who reside in our participating attendance areas attend a private school. If a private school has students it believes may be eligible for Title I services because they reside in a participating public school attendance area in another district, private school officials can request verification and a consultation for equitable services by contacting Melissa Muse at 512-715-5105 or [email protected].
Per the Non-Regulatory Guidelines, Title 1A is the only federal program that follows students outside of district boundaries. The district of residence is responsible for Title IA services for eligible students, not the district in which the private school is located.
Consultation must take place by June 4, 2024 for the 2024-2025 school year.
