Notification opportunities include, but are not limited to, initial enrollment, parent meetings, kindergarten orientation meetings, Back-to-School Night, open house, parent advisory committee meetings, etc. During these opportunities parents/guardians are provided the Instructional Programs for English Learners Parent Brochure. Parents should be offered time to view the Instructional Programs for English Learners video/DVD.
There should be a platform for parents/guardians to discuss and ask questions. These opportunities will ensure that parents receive substantial and accurate information to make informed decisions regarding their child’s instructional program placement.
