The purpose of this program is to assist local educational
agencies (LEAs) that experience significant increases in
their student population due to immigration. The grant

immigrant and youth. The term immigrant children and
youth refers to individuals who:

(c) have not been attending one or more schools in any
one or more states for more than three full academic
years.

Definition of Significant Increase
 A significant increase is a district that
 experiences growth in the number of
 immigrant students by 25% over the
 previous two years.
     Special Consideration
School districts with limited or no
experience in serving immigrant students
will be given special consideration in the
process of reviewing and awarding funds
to ensure greater success of the immigrant
students.
If your district doesn’t meet this guideline,
we still encourage you to apply, as these
applications are reviewed on an individual
basis.
When joining a Consortium…
If districts do not have the defined
significant increase in eligible students,
they can form a consortium and apply as a
single entity.
Assign a fiscal agent & responsibilities.
Maintain appropriate records & reports.
