Dear Select County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Part A, Section 3121, requires each Title III Limited English Proficient Student Program subgrantee to report on language instruction programs and activities they conduct. The California Department of Education (CDE) has created an online survey to comply with this requirement to report on the 2012–13 school year. This online survey will be available from September 3, 2013, through September 30, 2013.
The survey questions relate to the implementation of language instruction programs in your local educational agency during the 2012–13 school year, whether or not paid for with Title III funds. Consortium leads should submit a separate survey for each consortium member. The Title III Director or a person knowledgeable about the Title III program in your agency should complete the survey.
You may find the online survey on the CDE Title III Limited English Proficient Student Program Annual Survey Web page at http://www2.cde.ca.gov/title3edprogram/leplogon.aspx. You will need the personal identification number (PIN) provided on the enclosed Logon Information document in order to obtain access to the survey.
If you have any questions regarding this subject, please contact Pamela Lucas, Associate Governmental Program Analyst, Language Policy and Leadership Office, by phone at 916-323-5739 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
