The guide is designed to assist school districts in designing and implementing programs to: (1) meet the needs of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students; and (2) be in compliance with state statutes and regulations. The guidelines are presented in seven sections, the first six corresponding to the sections of the program plan that must be submitted by each district: the program summary, identification and exit of eligible participants, program description, special services for LEP students, program implementation, and program evaluation. The seventh section contains appendixes, including the text of the state bilingual education act of 1974, the state administrative code for bilingual education, the state cut-scores for the standardized tests to be used for student assessment, full-time equivalency tables for staffing, the test codes for instruments with norm-referenced interpretation and needing follow-up, a chart of required testing for bilingual and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students, a glossary, and an index of the countries of the world and languages spoken (for completion of required reporting).
