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.

See the English Learner Identification Procedure documents below. They outline the required procedures for identifying ELs and related policies.
