Budget Issue: English Language Acquisition Program (ELAP).
Program: California Department of Education
Finding or Recommendation: Merge ELAP and its associated funding into the more broad-based Economic Impact Aid program. This would grant school districts greater flexibility to spend the funds on English learner and low-income students of any grade level.
