The Framework, once developed, will be provided to States for their use in evaluating their ELP standards and assessments.

DATES: We must receive your recommendations on or before 5 p.m., Eastern time, on August 1, 2007.

Individuals with disabilities may obtain this document in an alternative format (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, or computer diskette) on request to the contact person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Addressing the needs of the Nation’s more than 4.6 million (and growing) population of limited English proficient (LEP) students is central to meeting the goals of NCLB. Improving instruction and closing the achievement gap for LEP students start with high-quality standards and assessments. We must be able to measure what LEP students know and do not know, in terms of core subject matter and the acquisition of English language skills, in order to address their academic needs. The focus on both core subject matter (e.g., reading/language arts, math, and science) and the acquisition of English language skills requires coordination and collaboration between the Title I and Title III programs. Therefore, we invite and encourage recommendations from not only technical experts in standards, assessment, and language development, but also parents, teachers, administrators, researchers, and others with experience and expertise in Title I or Title III programs. Section 3113 of the ESEA requires each State educational agency (SEA) to submit a plan to the Secretary describing how the agency will establish standards and objectives for raising the level of English proficiency that are derived from the four recognized E:\FR\FM\06JNN1.SGM 06JNN1
