Main Points

Proposed new policy DEC, "Title I Program Comparability of Services," is before the Board for First Reading.  Title I has long required that state and local funding be used to provide services in Title I schools that are comparable to those provided in non-Title I schools.  CMS has numerous processes, which have been in place for many years, to comply with this requirement.  With the adoption of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is requiring that school districts provide assurances of board-adopted policies that address comparability requirements.  The adoption of this policy will not change current CMS practices, but will bring CMS into compliance with the new NCDPI requirement.

This policy was reviewed by the Policy Committee on April 17, 2017 and was unanimously approved for First Reading by the Board.
