Language Proficiency Assessment Committees, Training Manual.
Intercultural Development Research Association, San Antonio, TX.
The Language Proficiency Assessment Committees (LPACs) authorized by Congress were given the responsibility of assessing limited-English-speaking students within a school district and making placement recommendations regarding these students to the local school board. This manual governs a workshop for the training of members of an LPAC; it may also be used to orient and inform other interested educators. It is expected that, upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to work as a committee and will have developed a plan of implementation to be presented to the decision makers of their school district. Furthermore, they should be able to orient and inform all personnel involved in bilingual education, and should be able to serve as workshop facilitators to train other committees. (JB)
