Non-profit private schools, also known as nonpublic schools, are eligible to participate in Federally funded programs to receive equitable services for their eligible students, their teachers, and parents. These funds may be used to provide supplementary instruction to students who are educationally disadvantaged and failing or most at risk of failing to meet high academic standards, and who reside in Title I, Part A public school zones. Instruction may take place during the school day, before or after school, or in the summer.
Title II, Part A funds provide nonpublic schools with professional development for teacher training in the core academic subjects as well as best practices in the areas of classroom management and instructional strategies. Nonpublic schools who wish to participate are provided an allocation of funds based on student enrollment on the 100th day of school, (100th day is the day public and nonpublic schools enrollment is Title I certified for the following year).
This allocation is used for participation in various professional development opportunities provided in the identified core academic subject areas through Volusia County Schools Professional Development Department or for pre-approved conferences and workshops within the state of Florida.
Nonpublic schools complete a Title II professional development plan that includes a needs assessment, activities, assurances, and a budget plan and must return it to the Title II Program Specialist’s office for approval before any professional development training is approved.
Title I, Part C funds provide support and supplemental educational services to families who travel for agricultural jobs.
