providing for the participation in special programs for educationally deprived children enrolled in private elementary and secondary schools as required by subsection (a), the Commissioner shall waive such requirement and the provisions of section 141(a)(2), and shall arrange for the provision of services to such children through arrangements which shall be subject to the requirements of subsection (a). " (2) If the Commissioner determines that a local educational agency has substantially failed to provide for the participation on an equitable basis of educationally deprived children enrolled in private elementary and secondary schools as required by subsection (a), he shall arrange for the provision of services to such children through arrangements which shall be subject to the requirements of subsection (a), upon which determination the provisions of paragraph (a) and section 141 (a)(2) shall be waived. "(3) When the Commissioner arranges for services pursuant to this section, he shall, after consultation with the appropriate public and private school officials, pay the cost of such services from the appropriate allocation or allocations under this title. "(4)(A) the Commissioner shall not take any final action under this section until he has afforded the State educational agency and local educational agency affected by such action at least sixty days notice of his proposed action and an opportunity for a hearing with respect thereto on the record. " (B) If a State or local educational agency is dissatisfied with the Commissioner's final action after a hearing under subparagraph (A) of this paragraph, it may within sixty days after notice of such action, file with the United States court of appeals for the circuit in which such State is located a petition for review of that action, A copy of the petition shall be forthwith transmitted by the clerk of the court to the Commissioner. The Commissioner thereupon shall file in the court the record of the proceedings on which he based his action, as provided in section 2112 of title 28, United States Code. " (C) The findings of fact by the Commissioner, if supported by substantial evidence, shall be conclusive; but the court, for good cause shown, may remand the case to the Commissioner to take further evidence, and the Commissioner may thereupon make new or modified findings of fact and may modify his previous action, and shall file in the court the record of the further proceedings. Such new or modified findings of fact shall likewise be conclusive if supported by substantial evidence, " (D) Upon the filing of such petition, the court shall have jurisdiction to affirm the action of the Commissioner or to set it aside, in whole or in part. The judgment of the court shall be subject to review by the Supreme Court of the United States upon certiorari or certification as provided in section 1254 of title 28, United States Code.". (7) Section 144 of such title I is amended by striking out the first sentence and inserting in lieu thereof the following: "If the sums appropriated for any fiscal year for making the payments provided in this title are not sufficient to pay in full the total amounts which all local and State educational agencies are entitled to receive under this title for such year, the amount available for each grant to a State agency eligible for a grant under section 121, 122, or 123 shall be equal to the total amount of the grant as computed under each such section. If the remainder of such sums available after the application of the preceding sentence is not sufficient to pay in full the total amounts which all local educational agencies are entitled to receive under part A of this title for such year, the allocations to such agencies and allocations under part B shall, subject to adjustments under the next sentence, be ratably reduced to the extent necessary to bring the aggregate of such allocations within the limits of the amount so appro-
