Welcome Title III: Programs for Limited English Proficient Students
Title III funds are supplemental federal funds for instruction of students whose native or home language is not English. Title III focuses on helping English Language Learners achieve English proficiency as a means to academic achievement. The goal of Title III, English Learner Department, is to accurately identify and provide support to students that are in the process of mastering English. Staff and teachers continue to implement, expand upon, and support the many programs and services we provide for our parents, community, and diverse student population. We are committed to supporting the whole child, focusing on the language, cognitive, as well as the social-emotional needs of our second language students.
All Ocean View schools receive support from Title III funds. In order to better serve our community, we have school site English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) consisting of parents that assist school administration and staff on instructional decisions that promote student achievement. The District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) is comprised of representatives from each school's ELAC. The DELAC committee's role is to advise the district on programs and services for English Learner students. We invite all parents to participate in their school ELAC meetings and/or in the district DELAC meetings. For more information, please contact your school site's office staff or district office.
