Title III is a supplemental grant under the ESEA and updated by ESSA. Title III, Part A is officially known as the Language Instruction for English Learner and Immigrant Students Act. The overarching purpose is to ensure that English learner (EL) students, including immigrant children and youth, attain English language proficiency and meet the same challenging state academic standards that other students are expected to meet.
