Projects funded under the Native American and Alaska Native Children in School Program, authorized under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA), may support the teaching and studying of Native American languages, but must have, as a project objective, an increase in English language proficiency for participating students.

Competitive preference priorities 1 and 2 are from the notice of final supplemental priorities and definitions for discretionary grant programs, published in the Federal Register on December 15, 2010 (75 FR 78485) and corrected on May 12, 2011 (76 FR 27637). Competitive Preference Priorities: For FY 2013, and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition, these priorities are competitive preference priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(2)(i) we award up to 10 additional points to an application, depending upon how well it meets competitive preference priority 1, and up to 5 additional points to an application, depending upon how well it meets competitive preference priority 2 (i.e., an application could attain up to 15 additional points depending upon how well it meets both competitive preference priority 1 and competitive preference priority 2). Note: We will add competitive preference priority points for priorities 1 and 2 only to applications that score 75 or higher on the selection criteria. We will fund only applications that score 75 or higher on the selection criteria. These priorities are: Competitive Preference Priority 1— Increasing Postsecondary Success (10 points) Projects that are designed to address the following priority area: Increasing the number and proportion of high-need students (as defined in this 1 The term English learner, as used in this notice, is synonymous with the term limited English proficient (LEP), as defined in section 9101(25) of the ESEA.
