ESL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION EDUCATIONAL
PROGRAM (LIEP)

Every school district shall provide a program for
each student whose dominant language is not
English for the purpose of facilitating the
student's achievement of English proficiency and
the academic standards under § 4.12 (relating to
academic standards). Programs under this
section shall include appropriate bilingualbicultural or English as a second language (ESL )
instruction. 22 Pa. Code § 4.26
BASIC EDUCATION CIRCULAR
The BEC, Educating Students with Limited
English Proficiency and English Language
Learners, provides LEAs with the requirements
and interpretations of legal mandates governing
the education of this population.
 Each LEA must have a written, board approved
ESL Program.
 The BEC assists LEAs in designing,
implementing, and evaluating ESL Programs.

IDENTIFICATION, PLACEMENT, & EXIT OF
ELLS
PLACEMENT IS A PROCESS!



Student placement into an ESL or Bilingual Program
must be based on the results of the Home Language
Survey, the W-APT, and consideration of multiple
criteria.
From the Home Language Survey, LEAs identify
students with a primary home language other than
English (PHLOTEs). From the PHLOTE list, LEAs
implement a process to identify students who are in
need of English language instruction programs.
Based on further information and the use of
multiple criteria, a PHLOTE student may be


formally assessed for English language proficiency (using
the W-APT) and possible placement in an English
language instructional program
exempted from a formal English language proficiency
assessment
EXEMPTION FROM FORMAL ASSESSMENT


There are certain scenarios that may preclude
assessment if a student can demonstrate English
language proficiency (ELP).
Students should meet two of the following three
criteria to be exempted from a formal ELP
assessment. Student records for children from other
states or school systems can be considered as part of
the criteria.
Final grades of B or better in core subject areas
(Mathematics, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies);
 Scores on district-wide assessments that are comparable to
the Basic performance level on the PSSA;
 Scores of Basic in Reading, Writing and Math on the PSSA
or an equivalent assessment from another state.

FURTHER INFORMATION


Further information can be gathered from additional
questionnaires, meetings with parents/caregivers, meetings
with students, and examination of documents pertaining to
the student’s prior education.
Additional questions for parents/caregivers might
include the following:







How many years did your child attend school in your native
country? In the United States?
What grade was your child in at the last school he/she
attended?
What language does your child most frequently speak at
home?
What language do you use most frequently to speak to your
child?
What is the language spoken most often by the adults in the
home?
Can your child read in your native language? How well?
Can your child write in your native language? How well?
USE OF THE W-APT




If the Home Language Survey, further information, and
multiple criteria warrant formal assessment of English
language proficiency for potential placement into an
English language instructional program, Pennsylvania
requires the administration of the W-APT as an initial
measure of a student’s English language proficiency.
Parent permission to assess is not required.
W-APT scores, in combination with other multiple criteria,
help to determine whether or not a student is in need of an
English language instructional program.
For additional guidance
ESL Toolkit at www.eslportalpa.info
 Use of the W-APT for Identification and Placement
(August 21, 2013)
 Recorded webinar information and PA-specific guidance
document available on the ESL Portal at the following link:


PARENT NOTIFICATION

Placement in a Core ESL and/or a Title III supplemental ESL
Program requires parent notification
Within 30 days of the beginning of the school year
Within 14 days of enrollment during the school year
Must be in the parents’ preferred language and mode of
communication
 Notification must include identification, assessment results,
placement, instructional model, how program will address students’
educational needs

LANGUAGE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM EXIT





Every LEA must include the State Required Exit
Criteria in the LEA’s Program Plan for ELLs.
The State Required Exit Criteria for Pennsylvania’s
English Language Instructional Programs for
English Language Learners have been updated to
incorporate the Keystone Exam assessments.
The State Required Exit Criteria for Pennsylvania’s English
Language Instructional Programs for English Language
Learners (Revised June 2013) must be applied to determine
program exit for students after June 1, 2013.
Program exit from the Pennsylvania English language
instructional program for English language learners takes
place annually between June and September.
Student exit from an ESL or Bilingual Program must be
based on Pennsylvania’s exit criteria.
CUT-OFF SCORE FLEXIBILITY IN SPECIAL
CIRCUMSTANCES

Following the scoring criteria in the table below, the W-APT may be administered between
June and September to students who scored below the minimum cutoff for program exit on
the January administration of the ACCESS in order to demonstrate sufficient progress to
justify exit.
