ISBE DELL e-Broadcast 2008.114-FY09 Consolidated Application Funding and Immigrant Education Program Student Counts

Dear Bilingual Program Director:

This message is from the Division of English Language Learning

The final list of districts eligible for IEP funding in FY09 will be available the week of May 19th, 2008 at

Before finalizing the list of eligible districts, we are providing districts an opportunity to review their submitted IEP student count.

  • Districts shown with a shaded cell next to the name indicates no IEP count has been received.  It is important to submit an IEP student count for the current year even if the district is not planning to apply for IEP funding or if the district has experienced a decrease in the number of IEP students.  The count is used to determine future IEP funding eligibility.  States must annually submit the immigrant student count to the U.S. Department of Education.  For this reason, we request your assistance in obtaining an accurate statewide 2007-08 immigrant student count.  Districts should fax the count to Boon Lee at (312) 814-8636 no later than May 15th.

Districts that have not yet submitted their IEP count can access a copy of the report form at: Cover Letter Report

Please contact Boon Lee at (312) 814-3850 or by email at to report any discrepancies or to request assistance with the Immigrant Education Program Report.
