English as a Second Language
Title III is responsible for the oversight of the language instruction of limited-English proficient and immigrant students. This is accomplished by: administering grant programs that help children develop proficiency in English and achieve high content standards; recommending policies and promoting best practices for meeting the needs of English language learners; strengthening collaboration and coordination among federal, state, and local programs serving English language learners; and monitoring funded programs and providing technical assistance that addresses outcomes and accountability.
For more information, see the SC State Department of Education Title III information.
