Section 2 offers guidelines for establishing productive working relationships between private schools and local and state education officials, the federal government role in the participation of private school students and teachers in federal education programs, and the role of private school officials in such participation. Recommendations are offered for public school officials administering federal education programs for private school students. The third section contains suggestions for participating in competitive grant programs. Federal education programs serving private school students are described in the fourth section. Three figures are included.
