Equitable Services Implementation Plan (ESIP)

ESIP is the U. S. Department of Education’s plan to assist State and local educational agencies (SEAs and LEAs) to improve the implementation of the equitable services requirements under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for eligible students enrolled in nonprofit private elementary and secondary schools and, as applicable, their teachers and parents.


To strengthen effective implementation of ESEA and IDEA equitable services requirements and to promote accountability for these services, the Department will:

  • Continue to review the current ESEA and IDEA equitable services Federal monitoring protocols and practices and identify and implement process improvements as appropriate.
  • Share information on technical assistance work and inquiries made to the Department regarding ESEA and IDEA equitable services requirements in order to promote better coordination among Department offices regarding equitable services concerns and use this information to assess potential areas for improvement.
