Dual Eligibility

Dual Eligible students are those students who qualify for English Learner (EL) / Bilingual services and Special Education services. The level of EL / Bilingual services that a student will receive is determined in a student's IEP (Individualized Education Plan) meeting by EL staff, Special Education staff, parents, and any other specialist that may be part of that student's IEP team.  

‚ÄčThe EL / Bilingual teachers and Special Ed teachers will then meet to determine how services will be implemented in such a way as to ensure that the student receives both services, as mandated by state and federal law.

All Dual Eligible students, including those whose parents have waived EL services, will take the ACCESS test on a yearly basis as mandated by state law.  Accommodations listed on the student's IEP will be followed during ACCESS administration.  In some cases, students may take the Alternate ACCESS in place of the ACCESS test depending on the severity of their disability. 

Dual Eligible students must meet the same Exit Criteria that is used for all English Learners in order to no longer qualify for English Learner / Bilingual services.
