OSPI has opened the portal for all non-profit independent schools to complete the intent to participate in federal programs for 2023–2024. Private Schools are asked to complete the application whether they intend to participate in federal programs or not.

WFIS strongly encourages all non-profit private schools to file this application. Should your school seek support through current or upcoming Title programs, such as the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (Title IV, Part A), this application must already have been filed.

Due Monday, April 17 – OSPI allows no exceptions to the application due date. Review the Education Data System Log-In Instructions for steps on accessing the system.

View the Private Participation in Federal Programs webinar PDF that OSPI ombudspersons hosted in late February. A recording will post to the Private School webpage soon.
