Title III Accountability (NCLB)
Title III AMAO Targets 2003-2014 Updated (12/9/14)
2014 Title III AMAO notification and report are available in IWAS under e-Report Card (2/15)
- The 2014 Title III Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs) notification letter and report are available in IWAS under e-Report Card for school districts that received Title III funds in 2013-2014 school year. The school districts that did not meet the Title III AMAOs for last two (2013 and 2014) or three (2012, 2013 and 2014) consecutive years must submit a District Improvement Plan (DIP) by March 31, 2015 to ensure that the districts meet the AMAO targets. The districts that did not meet their Title III AMAOs for last four (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014) or more consecutive years should address modifications of their ELL program, curriculum, and instruction in their plan. Districts are required to implement the plan during the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school year.
The DIP can be completed through either a Title III DIP template posted at http://www.isbe.net/bilingual/default.htm or the Rising Star platform at http://iirc.niu.edu. Districts can continue using the Rising Star indicators by logging into the myIIRC portal on the Illinois Interactive Report Card (IIRC). The 2014 Title III DIP submission guidance and resources are available under District Improvement Plan (DIP) below.
