English Learners (EL) / Multilingual Learners (ML)
"Giving Every Child an Equitable Opportunity for Learning"
The purpose of the Title III program is to help ensure that EL/ML* students become proficient in English and attain state standards through creating high level language instructional programs, professional development and parent outreach.
*The OPI is including the term Multilingual Learner (ML) here to reflect the latest research and pedagogical practices implemented by WIDA. You may see both used throughout our site, professional development, and other resources. See the link below to learn more.
