Changing the Tide: Reclassifying Emergent Bilingual Students with Disabilities

Join us on September 19th at 12pm PT/3pm ET for a free, interactive Zoom Meeting with Lela Rondeau, the Administrative Coordinator of Instruction for the Los Angeles Unified School District's Division of Special Education! Students with disabilities (SWDs) often struggle to reclassify from being English learners to fluent English proficient – California has an assessment that students need to pass to be reclassified. LAUSD has an alternate reclassification method through the IEP team decision, using the state’s requirements in which the team distinguishes between language acquisition and processing deficits. Learn more about how IEP teams make this decision in this CollabTalk.
