What are Title III Services?
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, more commonly known as No Child Left Behind (NCLB), provides federal funds to states and school districts to help ELLs become successful in school. In Florida these funds are used to supplement the required resources as defined by the Florida Consent Decree.
The St. Johns County School District utilizes Title III funds to aid in English language acquisition and academic achievement.
Currently, Title III funds are used for the following:
- Professional Development
- Supplemental materials and equipment for ELL student use
- Itinerant ESOL teacher
- Rosetta Stone
- Reading Eggs
