Adopted

Revised
1/19/93

The Edmonds School District is committed to an equal educational opportunity for every student. While English is the basic language of instruction, the district shall provide a transitional bilingual program for students whose primary language is not English, and whose English skills are sufficiently deficient or absent to impair learning.

The district staff shall:

  1. communicate, whenever feasible, with parents of students in the bilingual program in a language they can understand; and
  2. provide inservice training for teachers, counselors, and other staff who are involved in the district's transitional bilingual program.

For purposes of providing services, the superintendent or designee shall establish procedures for identifying and serving eligible.
