Special instructions for Excel and Access users

*For details on specific file modifications, refer to the File Modifications Web page.

**In 1998–99, the R30-LC was changed in order to align the instrument with the new statutes and regulations resulting from Proposition 227. Changes to the R30-LC, Part II include (1) the change in terminology from Limited-English-Proficient (LEP) to English Learner (EL) students and (2) a modification of Part II to include appropriate instructional settings required by the statutes (Education Code sections 300-400). In order to assess changes in the instructional services for English Learners, which have resulted from recent changes in law, the 1999 and future R30-LC forms capture the same categories of instructional services which have been used in prior years.
