ISBE DELL e-Broadcast 2012.235—ELL Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator
The ELL Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator is the first part of the ELL grant application, for districts interested in applying for:
- State funding: TBE/TPI: Transitional Bilingual Education/Transitional Program of Instruction
- Federal Title III funding
The submission deadline for the Enrollment Summary and Ceiling Calculator is March 8, 2013.
To be eligible for funding, once the Ceiling Calculator has been approved, a district will also have to complete the second part of the application, the ELL-TBE/TPI and Title III Application, which will be available in May.
The submission deadline for the consolidated TBE/TPI and Title III Application is June 30, 2013.
