The final interpretations in this Notice - (1) Provide States with guidance on the implementation of Title III consistent with the basic tenets and goals of NCLB. (2) Correct conflicting guidance provided by the Department and others regarding Title III assessment (ELP -English language proficiency assessments) and accountability (Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives - AMAO) requirements. (3) Give notice to States that, based on these final interpretations, they may need to amend their Title III Consolidated State plans, by the same process the Department uses for accepting and reviewing amendments to Title I Accountability Workbooks. Changes need to be in place for the AMAO determination States make based on ELP assessments administered in the 2009-2010 school year.
