English Learners: English Language Development Programs

The EL/Title III Office provides technical assistance to local education agencies (LEAs) to ensure that the systems establish, implement, and sustain high-quality language instruction educational programs. Through the programs, English Learners (ELs), including immigrant children and youth, develop both English language proficiency and meet the same challenging academic standards that all children are expected to meet.
