ISBE DELL e-Broadcast 2009.143-Immigrant Education Program Student Report Reminder

Dear Educators Serving English Language Learners:

This reminder is from the Division of English Language Learners:

Illinois school districts are reminded to complete and submit the Immigrant Education Program Student Report by January 15, 2009. 

Authorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110), local school districts are asked to identify immigrant students enrolled in both public and nonpublic schools within their attendance boundaries.  The immigrant student count submitted in this report will be used to determine FY10 Immigrant Education Program funding eligibility.

To access the memo, report form, directions for submitting the report and other critical details, see http://www.isbe.net/bilingual/pdfs/92-05_immigrant.pdf .

For additional information regarding this program contact Angel Quiñones-Cuadrado, Principal Consultant, at 312-814-3850, or by email at aquinone@isbe.net.
