English Language Learner Acquisition and Development Pilot Project

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.

The pilot project, to be conducted in the 2007-08, 2008-09, and 2009-10 school years, provides funding to identify existing best practices regarding topics, including, but not limited to, curriculum, instruction, and staff development for teaching English language learners and promoting English language and academic English acquisition and development. The intent of the pilot project is not to compare the effectiveness of instructional methods for English language learners, but rather to identify practices that demonstrate success for English language learners in achieving English proficiency, regardless of instructional setting.
