Berube, Barney
The report provides both statewide and school district summative data concerning language minority (LM) student demographics in Maine. Statewide data include a demographic overview, annual LM enrollments, high-concentration LM areas, distribution of minority languages, by language or language group, number of Maine public schools enrolling limited-English-proficient (LEP) youth, native languages spoken, methods used to identify LEP students, personnel support for LEP students, and LM performance on the Maine Education Assessment. District-by-district data include a list of school districts with "Lau" plans, a count of minority language children, subgroup data on LEP children, support services for LEP children beyond the regular classroom, instructor credentials for teaching LEP children, and federal projects. A separate section is devoted to data on LM and LEP students in individual private schools. A glossary is provided. (MSE)
