The English Learner Tool Kit is intended to help state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) in meeting their obligations to English Learners (ELs). The tool kit should be read in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights’ and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) “English Learner Students and Limited English Proficient Parents,” published in January 2015, which outlines SEAs’ and LEAs’ legal obligations to ELs under civil rights laws and other federal requirements.
