Title III/ English Language Learner Department (ELL)
The ELL Department initiates educational programs and monitoring for the academic progress of English Language Learners. We provide Instructional Resources, Program explanation and information for parents and students in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. At present, we have students enrolled at the Martin County School District that represents 42 different languages.
Title III focuses on helping English Language Learners (ELLs) achieve English proficiency – as a means to academic achievement.
Title III funding is annually awarded to states; the district received funding according to the number of ELLs.
Title III prohibits supplanting state, local, and other federal funds (including Title I).
We also offer free online courses thru Literacy Solutions for teachers to acquire the required ESOL training.
