Title III - Language Instruction for English Learners


Title III is a 100% federally funded supplemental program that concentrates on delivering language instruction educational programs to students who have a primary language other than English. This program is designed to improve the education of limited English proficient (LEP) children and youths by helping them learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The program also provides enhanced instructional opportunities for immigrant children and youths. 


Tuscarora School District's Title III funds are used to finance supplemental educational services through the Lincoln Intermediate Unit. This consortium assists the district in meeting the staffing, resource, and professional development needs of our English Language Learners. TSD currently employs one LIEP Teacher who coordinates accommodations, instruction, and assessment of students who have a primary language other than English
