SE 8 IEP Team composition and attendance                              Partially Implemented
Department CPR Findings:
Parents surveys and interviews indicate that the Team chairperson is not always able to
commit the resources of the district at the Team meeting and, at times, must check with
a higher authority.
Description of Corrective Action:
On the first day of the school year, hand out a copy of SE Criterion #8 and remind staff
that the chairperson of every team meeting has the authority to commit the resources of
the district. Follow this up with staff meetings at every building within the first month of
school further explaining how this should be accomplished by anticipating how each team
meeting will go and having possible answers to different scenarios. Hold multiple
meetings throughout the year to assess implementation of IEP based on reducing
reconvenes. Staff will be trained and monitored at team meetings.
Anticipated Results:
The anticipated results are to reduce the number of meetings that require further action
due to the uncertainty of offering services. This will be done through staff training.
Title/Role(s) of responsible Persons:                                 Expected Date of

Education, Team Chairs                                                10/30/2012
Evidence of Completion of the Corrective Action:
The evidence of completion will be the data collected on the reduced number of meetings
needed to be reconvened due to requests for services that could not be answered at the
time.
Staff meeting agendas and sign-in sheets will be provided.
Description of Internal Monitoring Procedures:
An internal monitoring sheet will be developed to provide documentation to Central Office.
A key component of the information to be requested will be whether or not there is a
need to reconvene.

Basis for Partial Approval or Disapproval:
The district will train staff on the requirement to have a representative of the school
district who has the authority to commit the resources of the district present at the Team
meeting. The district submitted a monitoring plan, however, the anticipated result was
not to achieve 100% compliance but rather to reduce the number of meetings that
require further action due to the uncertainty of offering services.
Department Order of Corrective Action:
Develop appropriate procedures to ensure that there is a representative of the school
district present at each Team meeting who has the authority to commit resources of the
district for the services agreed to by the Team.
Required Elements of Progress Report(s):
By November 1, 2011 submit a copy of the revised procedures to ensure that an
individual with the authority to commit the resources of the district is present at the Team

special education or related services. Procedures will be implemented immediately.
Anticipated Results:
Staff will better understand the regulations and be instructed to follow best practice
guidelines when writing N2's.

days after receipt of the parent's written consent to an initial evaluation or a re-
evaluation.
Department Order of Corrective Action:
Review the timelines of initial evaluations and re-evaluations that have been conducted
this past school year and analyze this data to establish the root cause(s) for non-
compliance. Based on this root cause analysis, indicate the specific corrective actions
taken to remedy the non-compliance.

 Criterion & Topic: ELE 3 Initial Identification

 Department CPR Finding: Documentation and interviews indicate that the home language survey is in
 English only and student records indicate that parents are often not completing all sections of the form
 so that students who may require initial identification assessments are not always identified.

Bridgewater-Raynham CPR Corrective Action Plan
 Department CPR Finding: Sheltered English immersion (SEI) is a program model for limited English
 proficient (LEP) students composed of two parts—English as a second language (ESL) and sheltered
 content instruction. ESL is explicit, direct instruction about the English language, delivered to LEP
 students only and designed to promote the English language development of LEP students. Sheltered
 content instruction is an approach for teaching content to LEP students in strategic ways that make the
 subject matter concepts comprehensible while promoting the LEP students’ English language
 development.

 Bridgewater-Raynham Regional is a low incidence district. In documents submitted, the district reports
 between 22 – 27 English Language Learners (ELLs) enrolled. A SIMS report submitted shows that about
 a third of the students (7) should be receiving sheltered content instruction. However, documents show
 that ELLs are not receiving sheltered content instruction, as the majority of teachers instructing ELLs
 have not completed all of the required training in all four categories of SEI professional development;
 such training focuses on the skills and knowledge necessary for sheltering instruction as described in the
 Commissioner’s Memorandum of June 2004. In the elementary schools, some teachers have completed
 Categories 1 and 2, in middle school only one teacher has completed Category 1; and in high school
 three teachers have completed Category 4.

 The district did not submit an ESL curriculum, therefore, the district did not document that the ESL
 curriculum is based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.

 Documents submitted show that ELLs are not receiving sufficient hours of ESL instruction for levels 1-3
 in both elementary and middle schools and levels 1-2 in high school; for all other levels the district meets
 the minimum requirements, consistent with the recommended hours as outlined in the Department’s 2009
 guidance document: “Guidance on Using MEPA Results to Plan Sheltered English Immersion (SEI)
 Instruction and Make Reclassification Decisions for Limited English Proficient (LEP) Students." For
 ELLs to succeed, it is critical they receive adequate number of hours of ESL instruction.

 Due to the lack of classroom teachers who are appropriately trained to shelter content and the lack of
 appropriate levels of ESL instruction provided to ELL students, the district is not offering a program that
 meets the requirements of Chapter 71A.

 Narrative Description of Corrective Action: The Dir of Admin,Curriculum& Grants will work with school
 principals, guidance counselor and ESL staff to ensure that the following activities are completed by May 25, 2012 in
 addition to the ones described in sections ELE 3 and 4 in this corrective action response.
 There are 5 levels of ESL instruction provided by the BRRSD: 1. Beginner 2. Advanced beginner 3. Early intermediate
 4. Intermediate and 5. Transitioning. These levels parallel the MA DESE document Guidance on Using MEPA results to
 plan Sheltered English Immersion Instruction and Make Reclassification Decisions for Limited English Proficienct Students
 and are fully described in the BRRSD ELE program booklet. Every identified ELL is assigned one of these 5 ESL levels.
 Every identified ELL is provided with a program of study in English that addressed their particular English learning
 needs. We have an inclusionary program whereby ELL are placed in content classes with native speakers of American
 English. In these classrooms lessons are planned that are: 1. Appropriate for ELL’s at all level of proficiency 2. Aligned
 with the MA Frameworks and ELPBO. Our goal is to provide students with a program of study that is inclusive of all of
 the BRRSD’s students and that honors their various language and cultural experiences. Students progress from one level
 to the next as they acquire more proficiency in English. Progress is determined through the use of various assessments
 including student performance in class, on the IPT, MEPA and MCAS. In addition, students are provided with
 instruction in ESL until they are proficient in English in the the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing at
 which time they are transitioned to grade level English instructed classed that do not use a sheltered English immersion
 approach to instruction.

 Basis for Partial Approval or Disapproval

 Although the district was responsive to the Department’s comment concerning issues in Program
 Placement and Structure (submission of content-based ESL Curriculum, adequate hours of instruction
 consistent with the MEPA levels of English proficiency, and SEI category training), it did so in an
 unsystematic manner.

         The district referenced the submission of a written comprehensive curriculum (see Evidence of
          Completion of the Corrective Action section), but did not specify that it must be a content-based
          ESL curriculum. The district should note that the ELPBO will be phased out in the coming
          months, and any curricula development designed for ELLs that the district engages in going
          forward should be able to stand alone and be able to withstand changes as requested by the
          Department

         The provision of hours of instruction that are consistent with the students’ MEPA levels of
          English proficiency were specified in ELE 9 (Instructional grouping), instead of in this section.

         The provision of SEI category training for the teaching staff must be embedded in a long term
          plan to ensure compliance (see ELE 15 for additional comments on Professional Development).

 Department Order of Corrective Action:
 Please submit the following:

 Content-based ESL curriculum

 Evidence that students at all English proficiency levels and grade levels are receiving hours of instruction
 that are consistent with the Department’s recommended hours of instruction.

 Evidence that ELE students are placed with teachers who are qualified –who have completed SEI
 Category training.

 Institute internal monitoring procedures that include the following and take place minimally on a
 semiannual basis:

         Hours of ESL instruction services for all ELLs that are consistent with students’ English
          proficiency levels.
         Teachers providing content instruction to ELLs are trained in SEI.
         Students are grouped by similar English proficiency levels when receiving ESL/ELD instruction.
         Teachers complete all SEI Category trainings.
         ESL curriculum is implemented.

Bridgewater-Raynham CPR Corrective Action Plan
 Basis for Partial Approval or Disapproval:
 The district does not specify if or how English language learners are grouped to receive ESL/ELD
 instruction. Concerning instructional groupings, the district should note that for any grouping of ELLs in
 the teaching of ESL, the student’s English proficiency level must be considered. For instance, the district
 can mix students by grade levels, but care must be taken that the students’ English proficiency levels are
 similar. For example, ELLs in levels 1 and 2 can be grouped together as well as ELLs in levels 4 and 5.
 However, ELLs in level 3 should be mixed only with other level 3 English proficient students. Thus, the
 district can mix students by up to three grade levels as long as long as students’ levels of English
 proficiency are similar. Other factors could also be considered for grouping ELLs, such as the students’
 maturity, literacy levels, and/or cultural backgrounds.
 Department Order of Corrective Action:
 Please provide the following:

 Evidence of appropriate grouping of students (English proficiency level or mixed grades and similar
 English proficiency level)

 ELL student and staff schedules

 Required Elements of Progress Report(s):

 Please submit the following by January 27, 2012:

         An Excel spreadsheet listing ESL services (individual or group) ELLs are receiving, as well as
          their grades and English proficiency levels.
         Provide three to five samples of student group schedules and name(s) of ESL staff. Include
          group(s) in the early grades, middle school, and high school.

 Programs and Services

 Department CPR Finding: A review of the documentation indicated that classroom teachers are not
 sufficiently trained in sheltering English content. Therefore, students with limited English proficiency are
 not taught to the same academic standards and curriculum as all students and are not provided with the
 same opportunities to master such standards. In addition, information in notices such as activities,
 responsibilities, and academic standards provided to all students is not consistently provided to students
 with limited English proficiency in a language and mode of communication that they understand.
 Narrative Description of Corrective Action: The BRRSD has created policies and procedures regarding the
 rights of English Language Learners to having equal access to academic programming. These are fully described in the
 Corrective Action responses provided in this document, specifically ELE response 3 and 4 and included in the program
 booklet. Included in these responses and policies is information about translators and translated services. In addition, the
 classroom environment for instruction in ESL will be comparable to that of general education programming. Sheltered
 content instruction in math, science/technology, social studies/US history will be in the general education classroom with
 teachers that have been trained in sheltered instruction.

 Basis for Partial Approval or Disapproval:
 The district intends to provide ongoing professional development for all teaching staff through a
 Collaborative; however, the district did not submit a long-term plan to ensure that all teachers working
 with ELLs are indeed trained. The district should note that the Department will be phasing out the
 MELA-O, therefore the district is required to have only sufficient numbers of trained MELA-O staff to
 meet the assessment needs of current and incoming ELLs, but is no longer required to train all teachers in
 Category 3. The district should continue to train teachers in Categories 1, 2 and 4.
 Department Order of Corrective Action:
 Please submit the following;

 A two-year SEI category training plan specifying timelines for the district to have qualified teachers to
 provide sheltered content to ELL students.

 Evidence that teachers are being trained in the required SEI categories.

 Samples of students’ schedules showing placement with content area teachers who are SEI trained.

 Required Elements of Progress Report(s):

 Please submit the following by January 27, 2012 and an update by a Date to Be Determined:

     1) A long-term plan to provide SEI professional development training to all staff, starting with
        teachers who have ELLs placed in their classroom.

     2) A spreadsheet listing SEI categories and dates teachers received their training. Organize
          spreadsheet by schools and grade level (elementary, middle and high school). Please specify the
          teachers’ content areas in the upper grades.

     3) Samples of student schedules that show their placement with SEI trained teachers: five samples
