Title III for English Learners
According to the U.S. Department of Education, Spanish-speakers are by far the largest segment of the Title III English Learners. Title III, Part A funds can help you to improve Parent Engagement and improve English skills with the EL parents. The main goals of Title III are for English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement and Academic Achievement. Below is a distilled overview to make it simple to understand:
Promote Parental and Community Participation
Educational programs for parents must include English language instruction while promoting parent and community engagement.
To help ensure that children who are limited English proficient (LEP), 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 and educational programs, based on scientifically based research on teaching LEP children that the agencies believe to be the most effective for teaching English.
