Description Abstract:

The purpose of the Title III EL student program is to ensure that all EL students attain English proficiency and develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same challenging state academic standards that all children are expected to meet. The purpose of the Title III Immigrant Education Program sub grants is to pay for enhanced instructional opportunities to immigrant students and their families. Local educational agencies (LEAs) may choose from activities authorized by Title III. Immigrant Education Program funds are to be specifically targeted to eligible immigrant students and their families through the provision of supplementary programs and services for the underlying purpose of assuring that these students meet the same challenging grade-level and graduation standards as mainstream students. This data collection contains EL student demographics and program support details.
