LPAC – Language Proficiency Assessment Committee

English Learner (EL) Instructional Accommodations Checklist
The English Learner (EL) Instructional Accommodations Checklist allows the Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC) to document the identified purposeful linguistic accommodations for teachers to routinely implement in classroom instruction for EL students throughout the course of the school year. The document also includes a designated area for the LPAC to capture instructional recommendations and subjective teacher information to support instruction at the Beginning of the Year (BOY), Middle of Year (MOY) and End of Year (EOY). The EL Instructional Accommodations Checklist is also available in a PDF fillable version.

To download the EL Instructional Accommodations Checklist, please visit the LPAC resources page.

 

Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC) Framework
The Language Proficiency Assessment Committees are charged with reviewing all pertinent information on all identified limited English proficient (LEP) students upon their initial enrollment and at the end of each school year. Districts are required to have on file policy and procedures for the selection, appointment, and training of members of the LPACs.

Limited English Proficient Training Flowchart
The LPAC interactive flow chart delineates the steps that must be followed in the identification, processing, placement, and monitoring of the Limited English Proficient (LEP) student in his/her intensive language instructional program as well as the determination for exiting and follow-up of the student as he/she transitions into the mainstream all-English program. (Hover over each box of the flowchart for text).
