|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.|
