Memo from Assistant Commissioner of Bilingual Education and World Languages Lissette Colón-Collins regarding English Language Learners/Multilingual Learners (ELLs/MLLs) Student Counts for 2017–18 ESEA Title III ELL/MLL Allocation
Student Count Information
The State Education Department annually collects the number of "immigrant children and youth," as defined by Section 3301(6) of ESEA, present in New York State. The information is used each year by the Department to determine each local educational agency's (LEA's) eligibility and allocation for the Title III, Part A Immigrant Education program. As a result, each LEA must count and report the number of "immigrant children and youth" currently enrolled in the public and nonpublic schools in the geographic area under the jurisdiction of, or served by, the LEA who initially enrolled in schools in the United States between February 1, 2013 and January 31, 2018. The information must be submitted to the Department by May 1, 2018.
