A Comprehensive Inventory of Language Development Documentation Data in the Ontario-Montclair School District.
Mitchell, Douglas E.; Karam, Rita
The report describes a project to document the content, nature, and effectiveness of services to limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in the Ontario-Montclair School District (California), which has a high concentration of LEP students and a variety of English language development (ELD) programs. The district developed a comprehensive computer system that links LEP instructional services to students' language and academic progress. The report describes the three phases of the project: an inventory of the district's existing data systems, documentation of district ELD programs and services, and development of a plan for a comprehensive data tracking system. The study identified two data management issues affecting language development programs related to design limitations of a currently-used database system, and seven general data management issues relating to the overall efficiency and integrity of the data systems. Solutions are offered. (MSE)
