The purpose of this letter is to notify local
education agencies (LEAs) that the 2013 Title III Annual Measurable Achievement
Objectives (AMAOs) reports are now available for access using the TEA Secure
Environment (TEA SE) NCLB Reports application.
A 2013 Title III AMAOs report is
available in TEA SE for all LEAs with identified English language learners
(ELLs). Under the Title III accountability system, an LEA that receives Title
III funds and has not met one or more of the AMAOs is subject to required interventions
as per Title III, Part A, Sections 3122(b) and 3302(b) of the Elementary and
Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
AMAOs Reports Access
Users must have access to TEA SE and to the NCLB Reports application in TEA SE in
order to view their LEA Title III AMAOs reports. Users may request access, or other related assistance,
Requirements for Title III-Funded LEAs Not
If the 2013 AMAOs report for your LEA indicates
that the district did not meet one or more of the AMAOs, the district is
required to provide parental notification within 30 days to the parents of all
ELLs in the district to inform them that the district did not meet all AMAOs
for the 2012-2013 school year. In order to meet this federal requirement, the
district must provide notification no later than February 4, 2014.
In addition, if your LEA has not met one or
more AMAOs for two or more consecutive years, TEA Title III staff will contact
your district administrator regarding additional requirements based on the
number of consecutive years for which your LEA has not met all AMAOs.
