The minimum grant award for Title III is $10,000, therefore it is necessary for low-incidence, rural schools to form a consortium in order to qualify for funds. As far back as 2003-04, the SEEC member schools have formed consortia to apply for Title III funds and have received grants varying from $12,000 - $24,000. In 2008-09, the SEEC began to apply for and manage the Title III grant funds on behalf of member schools. The benefits of membership in our Title III consortium include access to funding for EL endorsement reimbursement, reimbursement for EL related professional development/conference expenses and reimbursement for supplemental materials and activities that enhance the core EL program.

During the 2017-2018 school year we offered Go To Strategies training free of charge, provided reimbursement for four teachers who are working on their ELL endorsement (total of 14 teachers supported in the last 4 years), reimbursed conference expenses for Dakota TESL and the DPI Fall Educators Conference, supported a colony teacher sharing day in Milnor and the ND SD Hutterite Colony Teacher Conference. We also provided the setup fee and training for the Imagine Learning app for language and literacy. Finally, we supported supplemental site license fees or website membership fees along with supplemental language and literacy materials for a number of schools.
