Guidelines for Coordination of Special Program Services to Students of Limited English Proficiency.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
The guidelines specify principles and procedures for coordinating special services to members of Illinois' limited-English-proficient (LEP) school-age population, including transitional bilingual education and other transitional instructional programs, with other service areas. The first section presents the state board of education's vision statement, mission statement, and goals for public schools. Subsequent sections present guidelines for (1) integration and coordination of services to educationally disadvantaged children (Chapter 1 of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act); (2) integration and coordination with gifted education services; (3) integration and coordination with special education; coordination of vocational education programs for LEP students; (4) and integration and coordination with the Illinois pre-kindergarten at-risk program. The final section offers answers to common questions about coordination of services to the LEP population, including procedures for equalizing access to special programs, the responsibilities of school districts, and referral stages requiring parental involvement or consent.
