Title III Monitoring Plan
The purpose of the on-site and off-site monitoring of Title III and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) programs across the state of Maryland is to ensure that (1) the elements of Title III (Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students) as outlined in Section 3102 have been addressed by local education agencies (LEAs), (2) activities by LEAs experiencing substantial increases in immigrant children and youth are being carried out in accordance with the list of allowable activities in Section 3115(e), and (3) Title III programs are being carried out in accordance with the list of required and allowable activities in Section 3115.
Each LEA receiving Title III funds will be required to submit a mid-point progress report in June detailing the fiscal status, accomplishments thus far and future plans. Each LEA will also be required to submit a final report at the close of the Title III grant detailing achievements and fiscal status. Based on the information provided by the LEA a determination will be made on the action required, if any.
