Funding Description

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.
