Gregg Elementary Hosted LPAC Parent Training

On Tuesday, the Compliance team trained parents from different schools interested in advocating for the district’s English Learners at Gregg Elementary. Participants learned about the requirements of becoming members of the Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC).20180918_111913_1537287799003_001

Multilingual Programs Specialists, Dr. Randal Jones and Gina Lerma-Avila, gave parents an overview of the importance of having their representation in the committee.

“According to state policy, we are required to have a parent —of a student who participates in a Bilingual or English as a Second Language program— serve on the school’s Language Proficiency Assessment Committee. The LPAC serves as the students’ advocate to make certain they receive the appropriate services,” explained Dr. Jones to the attendees.

Parent volunteers would serve as a parent member of the LPAC and be asked to assist the committee in identifying and placing children in the appropriate program for language development and academic success.

In addition, parent volunteers participate in annual reviews and other meetings as necessary to ensure student progress.

The Compliance team will offer another Parent LPAC training on October 17th at Benavidez Elementary from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m & from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. To attend, please contact Dr. Randal Jones: Rjones3@HoustonISD.org

We encourage you to share this information with the parents of your English Learners.
