Title I Committee of Practitioners


Overview

ESEA as amended by ESSA Section 1603(b) requires each state educational agency (SEA) that receives funds under Title I to create a state Committee of Practitioners (COP) 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 COP 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).
