In compliance with Section 1117 of the Every Student Succeeds Act, Naperville Community Unit School District 203 will consult with private school officials regarding Title 1 funds at this meeting. No decisions that affect the opportunities of eligible private school children, teachers, and other educational personnel to participate in programs under this act will be made prior to this consultation.  Consultation will continue throughout the implementation and assessment of activities under this section.
