  Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of
  1965, as amended by the Improving America's Schoool Act of
  1994 provides in Section 6402 of Title VI, and in Section
  14503 of Title XIV that children enrolled in private
  nonprofit elementary and secondary schools are eligible to
  participate in programs authorized under the Act.  Each
  school division is obligated to inform private schools
  within the division's attendance area of the eligibility of
  students in private-nonprofit schools regarding
  participation in the Title VI, Title II Eisenhower Program
  and Title IV Drug Free Schools programs.  Each school
  division is responsible for ascertaining the number of
  students enrolled in private schools who will participate in
  these programs.
  
  Attached are forms for collecting the 1995-96 enrollment
  data to be used in computing the entitlements for the 1997-98
  school year.  The first form is the Private School Intent
  to Participate form which may be duplicated and used to
  collect participating data for Title VI, Title II Eisenhower
  Program and Title IV Drug Free Schools programs.  It is
  suggested that the Intent to Participate form be sent by
  registered mail, and that records be maintained of mail
  certification and delivery.  The second form is the Private
  School Participation Summary.  This form must be used to
  report the number of private school students participating
  in each of the three programs.  The original signed copy of
  this form must be returned to Ms. Doris West, Senior Budget
  Analyst, Department of Education, P. O. Box 2120, Richmond,
  Virginia 23216-2120, on or before September 13, 1996.

  division until all divisions have returned the required
  participation data.  If you have questions or need further
  information, please contact Ms. West at (804) 225-2091 or
  Mrs. June Eanes at (804) 225-2060.
