Parent Participation in the Language Acquisition Program

Parents/Guardians may choose a language acquisition program that best suits their child. Schools in which the parents or legal guardians of 30 pupils or more per school or the parents or legal guardians of 20 pupils or more in any grade request a language acquisition program that is designed to provide language instruction shall be required to offer such a program to the extent possible. (20 U.S.C. Section 6312[e][3][A][viii][III]); EC Section 310[a])
Parents may provide input regarding language acquisition programs during the development of the Local Control Accountability Plan. (EC Section 52062) 
Parents of English learners have a right to decline or opt their children out of the school district’s language acquisition program or opt out of particular English learner service(s) within a language acquisition program. (20 U.S.C Section 6312[e][3][A][viii]) However, LEAs remain obligated to provide the student meaningful instruction until the student exits the program, inform the parent when progress is not made, and offer the parent programs and services to consider at that time. (5 California Code of Regulations Section 11302)
You are invited to request a conference at school where your child’s ELPAC results and details of the English language instructional support program will be explained. To schedule your conference, please contact the school secretary or district office.
