Program Authorization: Title VII of ESEA of 1965, as amended 1994
The mission of the Title 7/Bilingual Education Program is to provide grants to local education agencies that experience large increases in their student population due to immigration.
The goal of the Title 7/Bilingual Education Program is to provide high quality instruction to immigrant children, to help these children transition into American society, and help children to meet the same challenging state performance standards expected of all children.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
This program is funded with Federal Funds through Title VII, Part C. - Emergency Immigrant Program (P.L. 103-382).
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
