In addition, parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The district will send a survey to the parents of students whose records the review team examines.The survey focuses on key areas of their child’s English learner education program. Survey results will be reviewed by OLA and they will contribute to the monitoring report.
Parents and other individuals may call Samantha Kodak, Office of Language Acquisition Review Chairperson, at (781) 338-3561 to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, DESE will make the necessary arrangements.
Within approximately 60 business days of the review, the review chairperson will provide the East Bridgewater School District with a report with information about areas in which the East Bridgewater School District meets or exceeds regulatory requirements and areas in which the East Bridgewater School District requires assistance to correct or improve practices. The report will be available to the public at https://www.doe.mass.edu/
