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.

Technical Assistance

To build the capacity of SEAs and LEAs to implement the statutory and regulatory requirements related to the provision of equitable services under the ESEA and IDEA, the Department will:

  • Host webinars for State and local staff and private school officials that focus on the equitable participation of private school students and, as applicable, their teachers and parents in programs authorized under the ESEA and IDEA.
  • Record and archive these webinars on the Department’s website for future access by SEAs, LEAs and the private school community.
  • Improve stakeholder understanding about allowable activities and uses of funds under the ESEA and IDEA statutes and regulations, through the dissemination of information.
