Language Instruction for Limited Proficient and Immigrant Students
Title III, a new program within the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 was authorized in December 2001 under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The program focuses on attaining English language proficiency; meeting the same levels of attainment in academic core areas as other students; developing high quality language instruction programs from scientifically – based research; developing and enhancing SEA and LEA capacity to serve English Language Learners/Limited English Proficient students (ELL/LEP); parental and community participation; SEA and LEA accountability; and high quality professional development for all staff. Title III Part A provides formula based funding for identified ELL/LEP students. The program also provides funding for immigrant students through the NCLB Title III immigrant Funding Application.
