Parent Notification Letters and Program Descriptions are mailed to parents/guardians of all Pre-K – 8 EL students at the beginning of each year to share the type of and description of the EL program that is being provided for their child. EL program screener scores or the previous year’s ACCESS scores are also included in this mailing.
Parents may refuse language support if their child is eligible for services through signing an EL Program Services Refusal Form. However, this does not relinquish the district from its obligation to provide a meaningful education to the student and to continue to annually assess the student’s language proficiency with the ACCESS for ELs.
