ISBE DELL e-Broadcast 2007.56 - FY08 Consolidated Application to Serve English Language Learners: Attention Program Directors!
Interested school districts serving English language learners are encouraged to attend a one day workshop to learn how to complete the FY08 Consolidated Application to serve ELLs. It is highly recommended that new ELL program directors (and other program and support staff who will be involved in the completion of the application) attend the workshop.
This application will include state TBE/TPI and federal Title III (LIPLEPS and Immigrant Education) funding streams.
This year workshops are being held at five locations across the state between April 17-26, 2007.
To attend, districts should:
The Illinois Resource Center will send confirmation cards and ISBE DELL will publish a list of registered guests at http://www.isbe.net/bilingual/htmls/bil_calendar.htm each Friday preceding April 17-26, 2007.
Districts should note that the FY08 Consolidated Application to Serve ELLs is not currently part of the e-grant/IWAS system.
Districts will need a PC computer, access to the internet, and Microsoft Excel (Versions 2000, 2002, or 2003) to complete the application.
Please know receipt of your completed registration form by the Illinois Resource Center will best ensure a working lunch and materials when you arrive.
The registration deadline to attend a workshop is Monday, April 2, 2007. Register today!
