Title III

Title III and State Limited English Proficiency Program

All Idaho School Districts are required, under the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to provide a comprehensive English language proficiency program for national-origin-minority students who cannot speak, read, or write English well enough to participate meaningfully in educational programs.

In addition to the law noted above, Idaho also implements the requirements under the Title III: Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient (LEP) and Immigrant Students program. The primary purpose of this program is to help ensure that children, who are limited English proficient, including immigrant children and youth, attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic achievement and meet the same challenging State academic content and achievement standards as all children are expected to meet.
