​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Purpose​



Title III, Part A: Language Instruction for English Learners and Immigrant Students of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as Amended under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) P.L. 115-141, enacted March 23, 2018, awards subgrants to eligible Local Education Agencies (LEA) “to help ensure that English learners (ELs), including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency and develop high levels of academic achievement in English." [Sec. 3102 (1)]

Title III, Part A EL Language Programs are a variety of supplemental services and activities provided to EL students, their teachers, and their families beyond the schools' legal obligations to English learners and their limited English proficient parents. All Federal Program services are provided within the Systems of Continuous Improvement framework.
