Title III Supplemental Funding 2020-10-09T13:17:45-06:00

Title III, Part A, is officially known as the Language Instruction for English Learner (EL) and Immigrant Students Act (Section 3102 of the lists the purpose of the law). The overarching purpose is to ensure that EL students, including immigrant children and youth, attain English language proficiency and meet the same challenging state academic standards that other students are expected to meet. School districts and state charters in New Mexico must use Title III funds to supplement state language instruction educational programs, designed to assist EL students’ achievement goals. The New Mexico Public Education Department, district, state charters, and schools are accountable for increasing the English proficiency and core academic content knowledge of EL students.
