The NCSTIIID serves as the voice of ELs, representing SEAs and LEAs across the United States

We are small enough to hear individual voices, yet powerful enough to be heard as a whole.

Advocates for English Learners

English Learners (ELs) are one of the fastest growing student groups. However, according to recent Census Bureau data, approximately 82% of PreK to 5th Grade ELs and 65% of 6th to 12th Grade ELs were born in the US (as reported by Education Week). ELs make up approximately 10% of the total student population in the US yet are one of the poorest performing student groups academically.

The National Council of State Title III Directors is a non-profit organization that is made up of State and District educators and others who are concerned about the educational needs of ELs. Leadership of the NCSTIIID is made up of State Title III Directors. NCSTIIID acts as a resource for SEAs and LEAs, advocating on the national level regarding important issues concerning the education of ELs.
