Title
Federal Entitlement Grants: Title III, Part A, Supplementary Instructional Support for English Language Learners

Discussion
The purpose of the Title III, Part A, Supplementary Instructional Support for English Language Learners (ELL) grant is to enhance and strengthen the educational services for ELL students by providing research based instructional support for language acquisition and academic success. To assist ELL students in developing English proficiency and meeting rigorous academic requirements, the 2017-2018 grant will fund comprehensive yearlong tutoring programs, supplemental materials and supplies for ESOL classrooms, professional development for ESOL personnel, and outreach programs to support parent engagement. We are awaiting notification from FLDOE as to the projected award amount.

As a reference $323,563 was awarded for the 2016-2017 school year.

Once submitted, a complete copy of the grant will be available in the Office of Student Services.


Recommendation
Approve the writing and electronic submittal of the 2017-2018 district grant application for the Title III, Part A, Supplementary Instructional Support for English Language Learners.
