screening, Identification, and Placement
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VI,
Language Minority Compliance Procedures, requires school districts/charter
schools/comprehensive CTC's to identify EL students. LEAs have a responsibility
under federal law to serve ELs who need ESL/bilingual instruction as well as
academic supports in order to be successful in school.
See the English Learner Identification
Procedure documents below. They outline the required procedures for identifying
ELs and related policies.
