Migrant and Bilingual Education
OSPI oversees the state and federal programs that help migrant and bilingual students and youth in Washington meet high academic challenges by overcoming obstacles created by frequent moves, educational disruption, cultural and language differences, and health-related problems.
The Washington State Migrant Education Program provides services to migrant children and their families. The program is federally funded as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title I, Part C.
TBIP and Title III provide funds to local education agencies to ensure equal educational opportunities for students whose primary language is other than English.
The new Proficiency Level Descriptors and English Language Proficiency Standards are designed to be used by classroom teachers and ELL specialists alike. The new ELP Standards provide correspondences to Mathematics, Science, and ELA Practices as well as explicit correspondences to the Common Core ELA and Literacy Standards.
