The District has developed a comprehensive approach in meeting the educational needs of ELLs, which includes the following: The District’s administrative practices and procedures to screen, identify, and place ELLs in appropriate programs; the District’s system to measure and monitor the progress of ELLs; a description of the services provided to ELLs; the District’s procedures regarding ELLs who are students with disabilities; and the District’s process to exit ELLs, including students with interrupted or inconsistent formal education; and the District’s structure to provide parents and other persons in parental relation with required information in a language that they best understand.
The Superintendent shall ensure that all data required regarding the education of ELLs is submitted in a timely manner.
Additionally, the District will provide professional development to all teachers, administrators, and Level III teaching assistants, as required by law and Commissioner’s regulations.
