Ombudsman Corner

To help ensure equitable services and other benefits for eligible private school children, teachers and other educational personnel, and families, a State educational association must designate an ombudsman to monitor and enforce equitable services requirements under both Title I and Title VIII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA sections 1117(a)(3)(B) and 8501(a)(3)(B)). The Ombudsman Corner provides helpful information and resources to assist State ombudsmen in fulfilling this role.
