Title III, Language Instruction of Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students, is part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. Title III of NCLB funds efforts to improve the education of limited English proficient students, also commonly known as English Language Learners (ELLs).
Title III funds efforts at different levels. At the national level, Title III funds the United States Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition which administers Title III.
