Funding Description

LEAs that do not apply by the deadline will need to wait until the 2014-15 funding cycle to apply for Title III funding.
Funding is made available to eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) to provide supplementary programs and services to eligible immigrant students. The purpose of the subgrants is to assist immigrant students to acquire English and achieve grade-level and graduation standards. Note: Recipients and funding amounts are subject to budget and administrative adjustments.


Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria LEAs that experienced a two percent or greater growth in the enrollment of eligible immigrant students in 2012 as compared to the average of the eligible immigrant enrollments of 2010 and 2011 are eligible to apply. Immigrant student enrollment for 2012 is taken from the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) data collections. For each LEA, the higher of the two counts is used to determine eligibility and calculate the subgrant amount.
