Are you familiar with the sources of significant federal dollars available to respond to the pandemic? The new American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) builds on the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA Act) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) for K-12 schools.

Strengthen outcomes for emerging bilinguals

With rapidly changing demographics, Title III has become an increasingly important piece of district funding. See how you can use this funding to help your students master English with the help of Renaissance products and to provide professional learning designed to improve the assessment and instruction of emerging bilinguals.

Title III funds are used to improve the language proficiency and academic achievement of emerging bilinguals and for activities that increase the knowledge and skills of their teachers. Language instruction education programs offered to these students must be driven by data on their unique needs. Star assessments offer the only  side-by-side English and Spanish comparisons of students’ skills, allowing you to determine whether their performance reflects a language issue, a content issue, or both—and plan instruction accordingly. Star CBM Lectura is a 1:1 assessment to reflect students’ literacy development in Spanish, a key predictor of English language decoding, spelling, phonological awareness, and comprehension skills.

Accelerated Reader’s books and quizzes in Spanish and Freckle Math’s Spanish version provide the practice to help emerging bilinguals meet the same challenging State academic standards that all students are expected to meet. myON and myON News improve students’ mastery of English, regardless of their native language. Each of these products provide support for language development at home, including video tutorials and family reports on student progress in Spanish.

 

A major component of Title III funding relates to professional development. Renaissance offers professional learning sessions for all of its products. Star CBM Lectura professional learning can be delivered in either English or Spanish, along with resources for these sessions in both English and Spanish.
