Rationale for LPAC

Section 21.462 of Senate Bill 477 House Hill 866 establishes Language Proficiency Assessment Committees (LPAC) for the purpose of allowing professional education personnel and parents to be responsible for recommendations regarding the identification, program placement, and reclassification of limited English proficient (ELL) students. The SBOE by rule continues to require districts that are required to offer Bilingual Education and Special Language Programs to establish LPAC committees. The district shall have on file the policy and procedures for the selection, appointment, operation, and training of the LPAC members.
