ESL News

According to state policy, we are required to have a parent of a student who participates in a Bilingual or English as a Second Language program serve on our school’s Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC). The LPAC serves as the students’ advocate to make certain they receive the appropriate services.

We are asking for parent volunteers who would be willing to serve as our parent member of the LPAC. You will receive training at the first LPAC meeting and them be asked to assist the team in identifying and placing children in the appropriate program for language development and academic success.

If interested, please fill out the form linked below:
