Nonregulatory Guidance

Developed by ED, the Nonregulatory Guidance describes the requirements of the Title I, Part D, Subpart 1 State Agency and Subpart 2 local education agency programs and the evaluation requirements in Subpart 3. The guidance provides suggestions for addressing many of these requirements and does not impose any new requirements beyond those in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and other applicable Federal statutes and regulations.

States may use the guidance in developing their own guidelines and standards; however, they are free to develop alternative approaches that meet applicable Federal statutory and regulatory requirements.
