2013 Title III Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs) Reports Now Available

Word version

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, as follows:

Requirements for Title III-Funded LEAs Not Meeting AMAOs

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.
