Such arrangements proved to be cost- ly and inconvenient tbr students and administrators of both the public and private school sys- tems. The high costs played a factor in the Supreme Court's conclu- sion that separation of church and state was not threatened by the presence of a tax-paid teacher in a religious school classroom. Nationwide, the majority of parochial schools with students using Title I services are Catholic schools, many in inner city areas. The federal guidelines essen- tially pick up the regulations in force in New York City public schools prior to the 1985 Aguilar vs. Felton ruling, which was reversed in this term's follow-up case, Agostini vs. Felton. The Supreme Court said New York's pre-1985 guidelines provided sufficient afeguards against unconstitutional interaction of public funding and religious activity. Some of those regulations are: -- Only public employees may serve as Title I instructors and counselors. -- Assignment of public school personnel to parochial schools must be made without regard to religious affiliation of the employee. -- Religious symbols must be removed from classrooms used for Title I services. -- Title I employees are accountable only to public school supervisors and may not partic- ipate in team teaching or reli- gious activities of the parochial school. -- No religious material may be used in Title I course work.

But it also acknowledged that existing contracts or delays in making new arrangements would mean some school dis- tricts will have to phase in changes over a year or more. And school districts are not required to change the way Title I services are provided because of the ruling, according to the Education Department direc- tives. As long as the services provided to parochial students are equitable and other require- ments are met, public districts may continue to use portable classrooms or off- campus sites, according to the directives. The guidelines also note that the Supreme Court's ruling seemed to imply that other fed- eral education programs might now be open to students in parochial schools. Oblate Father William Davis, who monitors federal programs for the U.S. Catholic Conference Education Secretariat, said there are numerous federal edu- cation programs for which some Catholic schools were deemed ineligible because of the Aguilar ruling. Many of those may now be open to Catholic elementary and high schools. For instance, he said, some states prohibited religious schools from participating in the Drug Free Schools program. Their reasoning included the rationale that because police officers who would make pre- sentations at schools were being paid with tax- generated funds, church-run schools were ineligi- ble to participate, Father Davis said. Parochial schools that were kept out of such programs may apply again. "The implication of the court's ruling is that there is no consti- tutional bar to public employees providing educational services in private schools under other federal programs under similar circumstances," said the Educa- tion Department guidelines.
