Dear Select County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:
Title III English Learner Program Annual Survey
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title III, Part A, Section 3121, requires each Title III English Learner Program subgrantee to report on language instruction programs and activities it conducts. The California Department of Education (CDE) has created an online survey to comply with this requirement to report on the 2020–21 school year. The online survey will be available to your local educational agency (LEA) from August 9, 2021, through September 17, 2021.
The survey questions relate to the implementation of language instruction programs in your LEA during the 2020–21 school year, regardless of whether Title III funds were used. The person assigned to oversee the Title III language instruction programs in your agency should complete the survey. Agencies that were the lead LEA of a consortium during 2020–21 are required to submit a separate survey for each LEA in the consortium.
The online survey can be found on the CDE Title III English Learner Program Annual Survey web page at http://www2.cde.ca.gov/title3edprogram/ellogon.aspx. In order to access the survey, you will need a personal identification number, which will be emailed separately at the same time as this letter.
If you have any questions regarding this subject, please contact Cheryl McGee, Associate Governmental Program Analyst, Language Policy and Leadership Office, by phone at 916-323-5838 or by email at TitleIIISurvey@cde.ca.gov.Sincerely,
Alesha Moreno-Ramirez, Director
Multilingual Support Division
