Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC) Framework Manual 2013-2014
Texas Education Agency
Commissioner's Rules Concerning the State Plan for Educating English Language Learners (ELLs) states that all school districts that are required to provide bilingual education and/or English as a second language (ESL) programs establish and operate a Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC). The LPACs are charged with reviewing all pertinent information on all identified English language learners upon their initial enrollment and at the end of each school year. Districts are required to have on file policy and procedures for the selection, appointment, and training of members of the LPACs. This manual includes clarification of the legal requirements for LPACs, and provides documents and forms to facilitate the training of LPAC members. The forms included with the manual are for use by districts and are not required forms for the implementation of a Bilingual/ESL program. This manual integrates state and federal Title III of Public Law 107-110 (No Child Left Behind) requirements regarding the identification, program placement, parent notification, annual review, and assessment of English language learners as they attain language and academic proficiency. Three major topics are covered in this manual: (1) LPAC Membership and Training; (2) LPAC Responsibilities; and (3) Coordination with Other Programs.
