    Dear Parent / Guardian:
    During the spring of the last school year, your returning USD261 student completed their annual Kansas
    English Language Proficiency Assessment (KELPA). The assessment determined that your student is still
    not proficient in either oral and/or written English and continues to qualify for ESOL (English Speakers of
    Other Languages) services in USD 261.
    The ESOL program is designed to help your student become proficient in English throughout their school
    subjects. A learning plan will
    be written to accommodate your student’s needs, and services
    available in one or more of the following ways:
    _____ * ESOL Newcomer Class: providing English/Language assistance for non-English speakers
    _____ * ESOL Pull-Out: providing small group English/Language assistance away from the classroom
    _____ * ESOL Inclusion: providing ESOL personnel in the classroom for English/Language assistance
    _____ * ESOL Computer Assistance: providing technology to increase English/Language proficiency
    _____ * ESOL Modified Instruction: providing ESOL endorsed teachers making content understandable
    When your student becomes proficient in English, as determined by their annual Kansas English
    Language Proficiency Assessment, they will be exited from the ESOL program. Following their exit from
    the program, a two year period of monitoring will occur in order to check their maintained proficiency.
    It is your right as a parent/guardian to
    or to
    ESOL services for your student.
    I have been informed of the procedures used to identify my child for ESOL services.
    I understand that my child qualifies to receive ESOL services.
    I understand that my child’s English proficiency will be tested annually as federal law requires.
    With this understanding:
    I give permission
    for my child to receive ESOL services.
    I waive ESOL services
    for my child, understanding that
    the annual KELPA will be administered.
