LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENT (LEP) STUDENTS
The Belgrade Public Schools has the responsibility under federal law to serve students who are limited English proficient and need English instructional services. The District will ensure opportunities are provided for parents to meet with building principals and teachers, provide information how parents can be involved in their child’s education, and how parents can help their child attain English proficiency and succeed in school. The District works hard to provide information to parents in a format and language that they can understand.
Each year, within 30 days of the start of school year or the student’s enrollment if after the start, the District will notify parents of a student identified as limited English proficient of the reasons their child has so been identified, the child’s level of English proficiency and how it was assessed, the methods of instruction used in its programs and others, how its program will help their child, and when the child is expected to gain English proficiency.
The District will provide notice to parents of limited English proficient students when the child fails to make progress on annual achievement objectives within 30 days of learning of such status.
Parents seeking more information about the District’s identification of and programs for students with limited English proficiency should contact Nicole Grafel at 406-924-2492 or firstname.lastname@example.org
