IHBD Equivalence of Services (Title I)


Equivalence of Services (Title I)




Education/Executive Director of Learning Services


Pursuant to federal law, school districts receiving Title I funds to provide educational services to students must do so in accordance with Title I of the Every Student Succeeds Act.


Title I funds shall be used to provide educational services to supplement the educational services provided for district students with state and local funds. By adoption of this policy, the district ensures equivalence among its schools in teachers, administrators and other staff and equivalence in the provision of curriculum materials and instructional supplies.


District personnel shall establish written procedures which include a process to demonstrate that Title I funds are used to provide services in school attendance areas that are at least comparable to the services provided through state and local funds in attendance areas not receiving Title I funds. Such procedures shall also require the maintenance of appropriate records documenting compliance with this policy and the updating of such records on a biennial basis.
