Title III is officially known as the Language Instruction for English Learner and Immigrant Students Act. Section 3102 lists the purpose of the law. The overarching purpose is to ensure that English learner (EL) students, including immigrant children and youth, attain English language proficiency (ELP) and meet the same challenging state academic standards that other students are expected to meet.
The Plaquemines Parish School District ensures that English Learners (ELs) will learn English in a timely manner, and provide them with equal access to the full range of the district’s academic programs and content that other students enjoy. The EL program fosters collaboration among school administrators, teachers, educational assistants, school counselors, and other staff who work with the EL population. Parents of ELs and community members are encouraged to participate in the planning and evaluation of educational programs at each EL school site.
