Honorable Robert Scott
Commissioner of Education
Texas Education Agency

Austin, Texas 78701

Dear Commissioner Scott:

During the week of January 30 - February 2, 2012 a team from the U. S. Department of Education's (ED) Student Achievement and School Accountability Programs (SASA) office reviewed the Texas Education Agency's (TEA) administration of the Title III program authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended. Enclosed is a report based upon the review of the Title III program.

The report includes a brief description of the scope of the monitoring review, recommendations and findings, and required corrective actions resulting from the review. The TEA has 30 business days from receipt of this report to respond to all findings cited in the report. We will review the State's response to detennine if all findings have been addressed sufficiently and request additional information, if necessary. We will allow 30 business days for the State to submit additional information or work with the State to identify a reasonable timeline that allows the State to address and correct all findings. A State that has significant unresolved non-compliance findings or findings that are repeated from one monitoring review to the next may have a condition placed on the grant award.

Please note that the findings cited in the report reflect the status of compliance in Texas at the time of the onsite review.

The ED team would like to thank Susie Coultress, Monica Martinez, and Vivian Smyrl for their hard work and assistance before and during the review. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your staff to address the needs of English language learners.
