Programs and Services for High School English Learners in Public School Districts: 2015-16. First Look. NCES 2016-150
Lewis, Laurie; Gray, Lucinda
National Center for Education Statistics
The 2015-16 survey "Programs and Services for High School English Learners" provides the first nationally representative data on this topic. This report is based on that survey and presents data on programs and services for high school English learners (ELs), including instructional approaches, newcomer programs, online or computer-based programs, and programs or services (e.g., tutoring) designed specifically for high school ELs. The report provides findings on the use of native language(s) for content instruction, instructional support, materials, and services. Data are presented about the information that districts provide about educational programs or services to ELs ages 18 to 21 seeking to newly enroll in the district, as well as the factors districts consider when providing information about these programs and services to ELs in this group. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in the Institute of Education Sciences, conducted this survey in fall 2015 using the Fast Response Survey System (FRSS). The purpose of this report is to introduce new National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) data from the survey through tables containing descriptive information, only selected national findings are presented. These findings have been chosen to demonstrate the range of information available from the FRSS study rather than to discuss all of the data collected; they are not meant to emphasize any particular issue. Readers are cautioned not to make causal inferences about the data presented here. The findings are based on self-reported data from public school districts. Many of the variables examined are related to one another, and complex interactions and relationships have not been explored. The following are appended: (1) Standard Error Tables; (2) Technical Notes; and (3) Questionnaire.
