ListServ Message Date: September 25, 2009
On September 11th, we mailed information to the nonpublic schools regarding the Federal Programs Nonpublic Workshops to be held in October 2009. The workshop schedule is under News & Updates on the Federal Program website at http://dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/. We encourage districts to attend the workshop in their area. We are not asking schools to submit a registration form in order to attend a meeting.
At these workshops, we will discuss the public school/nonpublic school consultation process, program evaluation, the impact of dual enrollment, allocation procedures, and other federal program issues. The presentation will include compliance issues that will be reviewed by the USED during our Title I and Title III monitoring visit in June 2010. These issues include multiple criteria, description of assessment, and professional development requirements.
In this mailing, we included a letter regarding the Nonpublic Registration process. A copy of that letter can be found on the Federal Program website at: http://www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/financialmanagement/documents/lettertoPrincipals2009.pdf
Although our office will continue to contact nonpublic schools on our registry, it is the responsibility of the public school to consult with the nonpublic schools regarding their nonpublic registration form. The public school should notify us if new nonpublic schools open within the boundaries of their school district.
