Title III - Limited English Proficient (LEP) and Immigrant
Title III Part A funds will be used to improve the education of LEP children by assisting them to learn English and meet challenging state academic and student academic achievement standards. Schools will use approaches and methodologies derived from scientifically-based research on teaching LEP and immigrant children.
Language Instruction Education Program (LIEP) for English Learner Students
ESSA, Section 1112(e)(C)(3)(A) requires Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) using funds under Title I or Title III and providing services to identified EL students, to have in place a Language Instruction Educational Program (LIEP) not later than 30 days after the beginning of the school year. Non-Regulatory Guidance, English Learners and Title III A of the ESSA requires LEAs to meet Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the EEOA and provide services to identified English Learners (ELs). A district’s LIEP describes ONLY those services provided through state and local funding. The LIEP does not include services provided with federal funds.
