Handbook for Private School Administrators for Effective Participation in Federal Education Programs Administered by the U.S. Office of Education.
Council for American Private Education, Washington, DC.
This handbook is designed for heads of private (nonpublic) elementary and secondary schools. As used here, the term private school means an elementary or secondary school, not under the jurisdiction of a public school board, that complies with race and sex discrimination regulations of the federal government. This includes schools operated by religious groups, independent schools, and community or "free" schools. Concentrating on programs administered by the U.S. Office of Education (USOE), the handbook is designed to show the numerous, wide-ranging services open for pupils and teachers in private schools, with emphasis on congressional mandates for their participation that were written in the Education Amendments of 1974. It provides a brief survey of the legal and judicial background for providing public funds for services for children enrolled in private schools. It defines the opportunities for and responsibilities of private school administrators and explores the relationships that must be established and maintained between the private school head and the public educational sector if there is to be effective participation in federal education programs. The handbook also indicates programs administered by federal agencies other than USOE and state programs. (Author)
