In an effort to provide additional support to districts and respond to concerns in the field about the education of ELs, the EL program area at the Department of Education is offering a series of online office hours. These informal “drop-in” sessions will serve as an opportunity for the Department to clarify policies and procedures related to the education of English learners, to answer specific questions from the field, and to allow district personnel to network and support each other. Act 48 will not be offered for these sessions. Sessions will not be recorded.
Format: One-hour online Zoom session
