Title III: Part A
Title III, Supplementary Instructional Support for English Language Learners (ELL) is a federal program that provides supplemental materials or programs to support all K-12 ELL students so that they may graduate from high school and enroll in some type of post-secondary program. These items are supplementary and may not supplant any materials or programs that already exist in the schools. The target areas for this grant to support are reading and language arts. The grant also provides assistance in the content areas to make them comprehensible for all ELL students. The goal is for all ELL students to acquire strong English language skills and be academically proficient, as measured by state assessments.
Private school personnel can access Title III funds. They are provided on an equitable basis based upon the ELL student population and needs. Access to these services is available upon consultation.
