Non Public Schools
Eligible private schools located within the geographic attendance boundaries of the
San Bernardino City Unified School District are given the option of participating in
equitable services for private school students under Title I, Part A. Title I, Part A
provides assistance to students who are determined as having difficulty meeting grade
level standards by objective, educationally-related criteria.
The funding for these services is allocated according to a formula based on the number and addresses of low income private school students who reside in the attendance area of the San Bernardino City Unified School District. Every spring,the district administers family income surveys to determine program.
These services are planned and provided through meaningful consultation with private school officials. Together, district personnel and private school officials determine what services best meet the needs of participating children. These services may include before or after school tutoring, small group instruction, computer assisted instruction, or supplemental instruction with enhanced classroom materials.
Additionally, the district provides participating private school teachers and principals with services under Title II of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. These services provide training and professional development opportunities toward the objective of developing highly qualified teachers and principals.
All equitable services under No Child Left Behind are secular, neutral, and non-ideological. All goods and materials used for equitable services for private schools are the property of the district.
