This page highlights English Learner-related policy decisions and legislative guidance from the Indiana Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Education. For a basic overview of the federal and local requirements schools and districts must adhere to for their English Learners, please visit EL101.

The implementation of ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act, brings increased accountability for schools as they support their English learners, and the IDOE implemented the English Learner Plan last year to provide support to schools and districts as they meet federal requirements to identify, assess, and provide English language instruction for their English learners. All Indiana LEAs are required to submit the English Learner Plan annually, regardless of current EL enrollment. LEAs applying for Title III complete the English Learner Plan as part of their Title III application and so do not need to submit anything further to the IDOE.
