National Evaluation of Title III Implementation: Report on State and Local Implementation
This May 2012 report was prepared by American Institutes for Research for the U.S. Department of Education as part of a larger evaluation of the Title III program. Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act provides funds to states and districts to support English language learners' (ELLs) successful attainment of English language proficiency and state academic standards. The authors describe how states, districts, and schools were implementing Title III provisions as of the 2009–10 school year and how implementation varied across the country. The report presents data about how students were identified as ELLs and later exited from the ELL subgroup, describes instructional models and programs that were being used to serve ELLs, explores statewide English language proficiency standards and assessments, outlines the structure of state accountability systems, and offers policy implications and considerations.
