Title III programs for English Learners is funding that comes from the U.S. Department of Education to help English learners. Title III Funding for programs can include a variety of activities but the main goals are:
• To promote parental and community participation in language instruction educational programs for parents and communities of Limited English Proficient (LEP) children;
• To help ensure that children who are limited English proficient, including immigrant children and youth attain English proficiency; develop high levels of academic attainment in English as well as in the core academic subjects;
• To provide State and local educational agencies with the flexibility to implement language instruction educational programs, based on scientifically based research on teaching LEP children that the agencies believe to be the most effective for teaching English.
The Latino Family Literacy Project™ has responded to the fast growing need for teacher training, effective curricula, meaningful books and strong English outcomes for Title III for English Learners and their parents. Click here to find a workshop.
Our focus is to train school staff (teachers, administrators, parent coordinators and project leaders) who work with Spanish-speaking parents and children, to use our parent involvement programs, which encourages family reading, strong vocabulary, and English Language Development.
