Title III

The focus of Title III, a component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), is to help local education agencies (LEA's) ensure that English learners (ELLs) and immigrant students attain English proficiency and meet the same challenging state standards required of all other students. To achieve this goal, districts that receive Title III funds must provide high-quality professional development activities to staff involved in the instruction of ELLs, including elementary education, content, and English as a Second Language (ESL).
