Title III

Title III of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act provides federal support for limited-English-proficient and immigrant students. The overarching purpose is to ensure that English learners, including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency and meet the same challenging academic achievement standards that other students are expected to meet. Schools and districts receiving Title III funds are accountable for increasing the English proficiency and core academic content knowledge of English learners.

LEAs eligible for Title III federal funds will not be required to submit updated Title III plans during the 2017–18 transition year, but are responsible for keeping their plans updated locally and available upon request.

Title III Accountability Support

SCOE provides technical assistance and guidance in writing plans, implementing best practices, and monitoring/reporting progress for districts not meeting annual measurable achievement objectives (AMAOs).
