receive a Title III Parental Notification Letter within ten days of
qualification, or thirty days from the start of a new school year.
Identification procedures (both English and translated versions) are made available to parents by mail at the time a student qualifies for EL services (initially, as well as from year to year). Additionally, these identification procedures are available on the district website,. Parents who choose to decline EL services for their children may do so by contacting the EL teacher and sending a parent refusal of service letter to the Teaching and Learning Coordinator. This letter is saved for future reference. Parents are given the opportunity annually to reconsider this decision.
The EL staff hold annual parent meetings to further describe our identification procedures, programming, and exit procedures to parents and address any concerns. Translators are provided at the request of parents for these events.
