Parent Handbook to Support and Provide Appropriate Educational Services

This project addresses the issue of improving assessment practices and procedures used to correctly identify and provide English language learners with appropriate educational supports. The focus of this project was the development of a parent handbook entitled Handbook for Parents of English Learners: Support and Intervention Processes Available in Public School designed to help prevent the over representation of English learners for special education services and provide English learners with proper educational supports including academic interventions, as needed, and English language acquisition supports. The content of the handbook is most relevant to parents of English learner, but also can be useful for school administrators, teachers, and the general public.
