Contact the Ombudsman
Florida has designated an ombudsman to monitor and enforce requirements under Title I and Title VIII of ESSA. The ombudsman serves as the state’s primary point of contact for addressing questions and concerns from private school officials and program offices.
Equitable Services for Private Schools
Title I Part A, Title I Part C, Title II, Title III, and Title IV provide equitable services to eligible students, teachers, and parents in comparison to services provided to public schools. School districts are required to consult with private school officials to design and implement equitable services.
The services provided by the district for private school participants are designed to meet their educational needs and supplement the educational services provided by the private schools.
