Superintendents of potential ESU #3 Consortium member districts receive a copy of these documents to complete and submit indicating the district's intent to participate or the district's intent to forego participation as a member of the ESU #3 Title III Consortium.
In the case of Title III, federal regulations require districts to join a consortium if their Title III Limited English Proficient allocations do not meet the minimum of $10,000. Districts choosing not to participate in Title III are still required by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and Nebraska Rule 15 to provide appropriate services for their LEP and IE students.
ESU #3 Title III Consortium Member Districts:
Arlington, Ashland-Greenwood, Bennington, Blair, Conestoga, Douglas County West, Elkhorn, Fort Calhoun, Gretna, Plattsmouth, Springfield-Platteview, and Weeping Water
