Given continued economic uncertainties, federal funding cuts, and slow growth for state and local governments, funding new educational programs may seem impossible—but it isn’t. Finding the means in these challenging times is absolutely possible.
Join us for an informational edWebinar focused on identifying funding streams for K-12 ELL and world language programs. Hear perspectives and insights on funding streams in K-12 education from David DeSchryver, Co-Director and Senior Vice President of Education Policy at Whiteboard Advisors.
Funding sources discussed include:
- Title I (formula grant for supplemental funds targeted for at-risk or failing students)
- Title III (English proficiency programs for LEP students)
- Title IV (community learning centers providing academic enrichment opportunities to complement academics)
- State general funds
- Private grants
This recorded event will leave you with a better understanding of available funds aligned to language learning and of strategies for sourcing the funds your language program needs. Educators and program, school, and district leaders will benefit from watching this edWebinar.
