TBIP Funding Formula Section 514 of the Third Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill 5034
Does this mean that districts should schedule a separate class or develop a specific program for exited ELLs? No
Recently Exited Services Academic content supports: • to exited TBIP students who are notyet at grade level (including social studies, science, etc.). • Based on individual student needs. • Provided by staff who are best able to meet an exited student’s academic need. • Before, during, or after school. Section 4(g) of theEngrossed Substitute House Bill 2051
Use funding for: • Homework supports. • In-class support. • Additional professional development for content teachers specific to needs of recently exited TBIP students. • Other innovative district supports.
Eligibility of Exited ELLs Exited TBIP students no longer qualify for Title III.
Reporting Exited Count Currently eligible TBIP students and exited TBIP students are reported separately on the P223 form monthly.
Reporting Exited Count Currently eligible and exited TBIP students are funded at a different rate. Include all currently enrolled students who transitioned on 2013 WELPA in the Exited TBIP headcount, regardless of whether or not they require additional academic support. Refer to the Enrollment Reporting Handbook for guidance. Fiscal contact: Becky McLean, 360-725-6306
Exited: 2 TBIP Grant Application Questions 1) How will the district determine if a currently enrolled student who exited TBIP based on the 2013 WELPA needs assistance in reaching grade-level performance in academic subjects? Examples: • State and district testing. • Classroom assessments and grades. • Teacher recommendations. • Must happen more often than once a year!
Exited: 2 TBIP Grant Application Questions 2) Describe the TBIP services (academic support) that will be provided to students who exited TBIP based on the 2013 WELPA.
TBIP Funding • Funds allocated and managed through the TBIP grant. • District business managers can separate the funding generated by currently eligible and by exited TBIP students using the F-203 form.
Recently Exited Students How do I find a list of the recently exited student in my district at any point in time? Procedure will be in the LEP Application of EDS (1-2 weeks)… For October counts, use estimate of number L4s testing in your district, and amend this count later when we have this App available. You will be able to select a date (or date range) to pull all the recently transitioned students enrolled in your district on that date. This will include a count, and all of each student’s most recent MSP/HSPE/EOC results. Do NOT rely solely on these annual assessments to determine who is behind grade level. 14
AMAOs How do I find my district’s AMAO results? 15

What can we learn from the AMAOs? • AMAO-2 provides a map of where the need for English language support services are the greatest in your district. • AMAO-1 reveals where the progress of LEP students in acquiring English is the slowest in your district. • AMAO-3 (when English Language Proficiency Level is controlled) reveals where students require additional academic content support in your district.

Beginning of Year Procedures For the purposes of the LEP Application, a new school year is treated as a CEDARS event requiring a new J07 – Program Start Date. At the start of the school year in the fall, districts are required to ensure that all returning TBIP students, all kindergarteners tested in the spring, and all newly arriving students are correctly entered into CEDARS File J submissions.
Beginning of Year Procedures The procedure for newly arriving students that indicate the student’s primary language is other than English on the Home Language Survey is described in the New to Programsection. Students who are continuing in the TBIP program need to be recorded as described in the Returning to Program - beginning of school yearsection. Kindergarten students who tested in the spring or summer for placement in the fall are entered in the same manner as the New to Programsection, once they have been assigned an SSID number.
Beginning of Year Procedures The beginning of the school year is the time to review the academic performance of Native American students to identify those academically at risk and in need of possible testing on the WELPA Placement Test.
