    PRIVATE NONPROFIT SCHOOLS AND
    NEGLECTED AND DELINQUENT FACILITIES
    PARTICIPATION WITH HISD IN FEDERAL PROGRAMS

    Principal Meeting

    Private Nonprofit (PNP) Schools in the city of Houston and surrounding areas are given the opportunity every year to participate with Houston ISD to receive equitable services from specific federal grant programs.  The Department of External Funding provides guidance for three of the six federal programs.  Click on the links below to view the program information.
     
    Improving Basic Programs for Economically Disadvantaged Students
     
    Prevention and Intervention Programs for Children and Youth Who Are Neglected, Delinquent, or At-Risk
     
    Teacher Training, Principal Training and Recruitment 
     
    Nonprofit, as applied to an agency, organization, or institution, means that it is owned and operated by one or more corporations or associations whose net earnings do no benefit, and cannot lawfully benefit any private shareholder or entity.
     
    Participation should be equitable; therefore, HISD must consider ways to:
    • Assess, address and evaluate the needs and progress of both public and private school teachers;
    • Spend and equal amount of funds per student to serve the need of public and private school teachers and their students;
    • Provide private school teachers with an opportunity to participate in Title II activities equivalent to the opportunity provided publish school teachers; and
    • Offer educational services to private school teachers that are secular, neutral and non-ideological 
    Student Support and Academic Enrichment
     
    The purpose of Title IV, Part A is to improve students academic achievement by increasing the capacity of states, local educational agencies, schools, and local communities to:
    • Provide access to and opportunities for a well-rounded education for all students,
    • Improve school conditions for student learning in order to create a healthy and safe school environment; and
    • Improve access to personalized learning experiences supported by technology and professional development for the effective use of data and technology
     
    For all federal Title programs, the equitable services must be supplemental (in addition to) and cannot supplant (replace or take the place of) services that would be provided to PNP school participants in the absence of federal funds.
