Committee of Practitioners

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 COP 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 COP 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 to the Bureau of Federal Educational Programs on the implementation of Title I programs, including review technical assistance documents, templates, and other tools that support the quality implementation of Title I in Florida.
