Title 1 services for Home School Students
Equitable Title I services must be available for low-achieving nonpublic students whose residence of record (parents’/guardians’ place of residence) is in a public school attendance area that receives Title I funds. St. Charles Elementary School receives Title 1 funding and offers Title 1 services to Home School Students. Students who receive services must meet Title I criteria, i.e ., multiple objective, educationally related criteria to determine which nonpublic students from the school attendance areas are considered low performing.
Low-income children who attend nonpublic schools are included in the census poverty counts that the United States Department of Education uses to determine the public school district’s Title I allocation, therefore these children are entitled to Title I services. Title I services are offered under the Child Benefit Theory, which was developed to comply with the Constitutional prohibition against federal funding to private schools. Therefore, Title I funds must benefit the individual child, not the nonpublic school, and be provided by the local educational agency (LEA).
