Title III under the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides supplemental funding to implement programs designed to help EL students attain English proficiency and meet the state’s academic and content standards. Title III accountability is a series of annual academic performance goals established for each district to hold them accountable for the progress and performance of ELs.

In addition, a variety of guidelines and regulations have been established to ensure equitable access to the curriculum for EL students and their parents. A description of these guidelines may be found in the District Master Plan for English Learners.
