Ocean View School District, Oxnard, CA.
This handbook outlines procedures for placing recent immigrants into linguistically comprehensible school programs at Ocean View Junior High School (Oxnard, California). First, a chart is presented which breaks down the placement process into three stages (identification, assessment, and placement) and identifies the site or person responsible at each stage. Next, the activities at each stage are outlined in greater detail, and a chart is provided which contrasts the different tracks taken by English-speaking and non-English-speaking students after taking a Home Language Questionnaire. Courses of study are then outlined for students at various levels of English proficiency. Criteria are listed for the transition of a Limited English Proficient (LEP) student to English Reading and for reclassification of the LEP as Fluent English Proficient. Finally, the placement interview form and the home language survey (English and Spanish versions) are provided. (KH)
