Title III is the portion of No Child Left Behind that serves English as a second language students. Through Title III, students who have a primary language other than English receive instruction in English in a specialized setting. English Language Learning (ELL) programs in the Sevier County School System are delivered by teachers endorsed in the ELL curriculum.
The ELL curriculum is a general set of English language acquisition standards that should be used in conjunction with content standards. These standards address the language support necessary to enable the ELL to access the grade level content curriculum by providing a bridge for ELL students to the academic content curriculum. ELL is synonymous with ESL (English as a Second Language).
