    Title I Committee of Practitioners


    ESEA as amended by ESSA Section 1603(b) requires each state educational agency (SEA) that receives funds under Title I to create a state Title I Committee of Practitioners to advise the state in carrying out its responsibilities under Title I. The Title I Committee of Practitioners must include:

    • School district representatives
    • Administrators
    • Teachers
    • Career and technical educators
    • School leaders
    • Parents
    • Members of school boards
    • Representative of private school children
    • Representatives of charter agencies
    • Charter school leaders
    • Specialized instructional support personnel
    • Paraprofessionals

    The Title I Committee of Practitioners is required to review, before publication, any proposed or final state rule or regulation pursuant to Title I. The Title I Committee of Practitioners also provides advice and support the implementation of Title I programs, including review technical assistance documents, templates, and other tools that support the quality implementation of Title I in Nevada. The committee serves solely in an advisory capacity. Nevada’s Title I Committee of Practitioners meets semiannually to discuss Title I related issues and policies within the state. Given the geographic size of the state, meetings may be conducted remotely (although committee members traveling to any in-person meetings can be reimbursed using Title I funds).
