What is Title III?

Title III-A funds are to implement educational programs for language instruction that is based on scientific research. Local Education Agencies (LEAs) are responsible for meeting Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs) established for ELL students, making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), and annually measuring the English proficiency of ELL by administering the State Board of Education approved World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) standards.
