Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC)

In accordance with state policy every student who has a home language other than English and who is identified as limited English proficient shall be provided a full opportunity to participate in a bilingual education or English as a second language program, as required in the Texas Education Code, Chapter 29, Subchapter B.

The Language Proficiency Assessment Committee’s (LPAC) responsibilities include reviewing all pertinent information for Identification, Enrollment and Placement in the Bilingual/ESL Program, Instruction and/or Interventions, Progress and State Assessment Reviews, and the Annual Review of student progress.  

When a student enrolls in school and indicates a language other than English on the Home Language Survey, the LPAC’s time requirements begin. Within four weeks of enrollment (or 20 school days), the LPAC reviews documentation of the student’s language proficiency and academic status, and recommends placement in a Bilingual, English as a Second Language (ESL), or mainstream education program. Parental permission must be acquired within the 20-day period. The LPAC must also recommend instructional methods and interventions and determine the state criterion-referenced assessment options at the appropriate time.

The LPAC also facilitates the participation of limited English proficient students in other special programs for which they are eligible, ensures parent notification of student progress and LPAC decisions made on behalf of the child, and continuously monitors assessment results, interventions, and program appropriateness.
