ESSA Title I - EL Requirements For All Title I Funded Districts
With the dawn of the 2017-2018 school year, ESSA is now in full implementation mode. ESSA includes a significant amount of new requirements under Title I related to English Learners (ELs). These EL requirements apply to all Title I funded districts regardless of whether the district receives Title III funds. Therefore, Title I staff in school districts now must have someone with expertise in the provision of language instruction educational programs for ELs. This presentation provides details regarding the Title I requirements related to ELs and includes some suggestions for cooperation and collaboration between those involved in the education of ELs and Title I staff.
