Please check out the key points from Chapter 3, "Serving English Learners" in the IDOE EL Guidebook 2017-2018:
English Learner Plans: All local education agencies are required to submit an English Learner Plan detailing their plan to meet the needs of English learners at all proficiency levels and across all grade levels. This requirement is met through either the Title III application or through submitting the English Learner Plan as a separate document.
Additional Information: In addition to addressing EL plans, chapter 3 also reviews the requirements of the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP), retention of ELs, recommendations for identifying gifted and talented ELs, considerations to be made before identifying ELs as special education students, and the ability for parents to opt-out of EL services for their child.
