The U.S. Department of Education recently released non-regulatory guidance to help states, districts and schools provide effective services to improve the English language proficiency and academic achievement of English learners through Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act. The guidance is an effort to ensure that students who are English learners receive the high-quality services they need to be college and career ready.
