In carrying out activities with such funds, the eligible entity shall use effective approaches and methodologies for teaching EL and immigrant children and youth. (20 USC §6825; PL 114-95, §3115(a))
  3. ESSA Title III funds shall be used to supplement the level of federal, state, and local public funds that, in the absence of such availability, would have been expended for programs for EL students and immigrant children and youth, and in no case to supplant such federal, state, and local public funds. (20 USC §6825; PL 114-95, §3115(g))
