The Lane County Title III Consortium began in 2003 with six member districts, all in Lane County. Through the years more districts have joined, including districts outside Lane County. There are now 12 member districts.
The goal of the Title III Consortium is to provide high quality professional development and technical assistance that is designed to improve instruction and assessment of English Language Learners. Funds may be used to provide trainings for administrators, content area teachers and English Language Development (ELD) teachers. Trainings include:
- Strategies to Assist Administrators and Teachers with Addressing the Needs of English Learners
- Academic Language – Bridge Across Common Core
- Learning Outcomes – Proficiency-Based Assessment Aligned to Common Core & ELP Standards
- Supporting Language Development at Home
