Non-Public School Ombudsman

Published: 6/13/2019 1:27 PM

​Titles I and VIII of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) require states to designate an ombudsman to help ensure equitable services requirements for eligible private school children, teachers and other educational personnel, and families are met.

​The ombudsman serves as the state's primary point of contact for addressing questions and concerns from private school officials and districts regarding the provision of equitable services under ESSA Sections 1117 and 8501.
