  • administering grant programs that help children develop proficiency in English and achieve high content standards;
  • recommending policies and promoting best practices for meeting the needs of English language learners;
  • strengthening collaboration and coordination among federal, state, and local programs serving English language learners; and
  • monitoring funded programs and providing technical assistance that addresses outcomes and accountability.
