Bilingual/ESL/Title III

Services

The Bilingual/ESL/Title III services provide assistance to districts in meeting the needs of English Learners (limited English proficient (LEP) students) through professional development and technical assistance. State requirements are met through the Bilingual/ESL contracted services. Federal guidelines are addressed through Title III with the implementation of supplemental services.

The TEA English Learner Support Division is continuously developing program implementation resources for Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to utilize in providing effective bilingual education and English as a second language (ESL) programs for English Learners that meet and exceed state requirements.
