SFPS Federal Programs for Private Schools SY 2021-22

SFPS federal programs meeting for all private schools, was held virtually on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM. During this Spring Consultation, we met with Private School Officials to consult on private school participation in Title I, II, III, IV-A 21st Century Community Learning Center (Title IV-B) programs.

Please Click Here to view the presentation from that meeting.

Your students and teachers may be eligible for federal services under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which includes Titles I, II, III, IV-A, and IV-B. Because the programs operate under the umbrella of the Santa Fe Public Schools, programs in the private nonprofit schools are considered public school programs and must operate through Santa Fe Public Schools and in consultation (with support, planning and monitoring) with the private nonprofit schools. There are a number of steps your school must take to participate; we will address those steps during this consultation. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON FEDERAL PROGRAMS FOR PRIVATE SCHOOLS.

Title I, Part A Program

The Title I, Part A program helps students in high poverty schools meet the same high academic standards expected of all children. Title I, Part A funding is distributed to districts primarily based on poverty as determined by the US Census Bureau. Title I, Part A funds are used to address the academic needs of students. For school year 2019-2020, Santa Fe Public Schools has twenty-one schools participating in school-wide Title I programs, one neglected children site, and one participating private nonprofit (PNP) school.
