Legal Responsibilities of School Districts in Serving LEP Students
In its publication, The Provision of an Equal Education Opportunity to Limited English Proficient Students
(1992),the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, provides guidelines to school districts
regarding their legal obligation to language minority students. The following is a summary of the
guidelines. First, school districts must identify all students whose primary or home language is other
than English. Then, the district needs to assess all the students to determine if they are limited English
proficient (LEP) and need special language assistance in order to effectively participate in the district’s
instructional program. Once a school district has identified LEP students who need assistance, it must
determine what kind of special language service program it will provide, and it must implement this
program. In Ohio, no specific type of intervention program is prescribed. Thus, school districts have the
flexibility to decide which educational approach best meets the needs of their LEP students. However,
the program must be based on sound theory and best practice. In other words, the program must likely
be effective in meeting the educational needs of its language minority students. Whatever program is
selected, it must provide effective instruction that leads to academic achievement and timely acquisition
of English proficiency. School districts that implement LEP programs must ensure that staff are properly
trained and that appropriate curricular materials are used. In addition, classroom facilities should be
comparable to those used by other students. School districts also are responsible to effectively notify
non-English speaking parents of school activities, which are also called to the attention of other parents.
Such notices, to be effective, may have to be in a language (or languages) other than English. Once a
school district implements a special language program for its LEP students, it must monitor students’
progress on a regular basis and take steps to modify the program if the students are not making
reasonable progress.

 More rigor in language and understanding
 Subtle language in test questions will make them confusing
 Some questions will have multiple correct answers
 Questions will have multiple parts and will take a lot of
concentration because of their complexity
 Students may have limited computer skills
From ODE’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee FAQ Document (Oct. 15, 2012)
 The following students may be promoted even if they do not reach
