Project ELITE2 is a model demonstration project sponsored by the Office of Special Education Programs in the U.S. Department of Education. This project operates within the Language for Learning Institute of The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk at The University of Texas at Austin. The goal of the project is to develop, implement, and evaluate a multitiered instructional model for English learners in the elementary grades that focuses on language and literacy development.
