Program Description
  • EIA provided supplemental funds for kindergarten through grade twelve to support additional programs and services for English learners and compensatory education services for educationally disadvantaged students, as determined by the local educational agency applicant. Prior to 2010–11, EIA funding was available to school districts that requested participation using Part I of the annual Consolidated Application. Commencing with 2010–11, funding was made available to both school districts and county juvenile court schools. Also commencing with 2010–11, English Language Acquisition Program funds were rolled into EIA and beginning in 2011–12 could only be used for EIA purposes.
  • Annual funding for school districts was based on the district per pupil rate times the sum of: 1) prior year English learner count, 2) current year Title I formula child count, and 3) weighted concentration factor. Annual funding for county juvenile court schools was based on the statewide average rate times the sum of these three items with one exception; county juvenile court schools did not have a Title I formula child count, and instead used the adjusted free meal eligible count.
  • A school was required to use EIA funds to support programs and activities designed to assist English learners achieve proficiency in the English language and to support programs and activities designed to improve the academic achievement of educationally and economically disadvantaged pupils. Allowable expenditures included the purchase of supplemental materials and expenses that supported paraprofessionals, supplemental resource teachers, and the operation of English learner advisory committees. EIA funds supplemented and did not supplant existing resources at the school site.
