The State-funded Non-English Speaking Program (NESP) was first approved by the Indiana General Assembly in 1999. This program provides supplemental funding to eligible school corporations to serve identified English Learner students to assist in delivering the legally required (Lau 1974, Castaneda 1981) language instruction program. The purpose of the NESP is to provide English language development instruction to K-12 English Learners to increase their English language proficiency and academic achievement.
