NEW ENGLISH LEARNER COMPLIANCE COLLECTIONS ALIGN TO OCR & USED COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS

LYNNWOOD, WA — To meet school’s critical need to provide legally-required “English Learner” parent notices in multiple languages, TransACT announced today the availability of three new compliance collections which align to Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and United States Department of Education (USED) compliance requirements.

David J. Holbrook, Ph.D., Executive Director of Federal Programs for TransACT said, “Every school and district in the U.S. that has English Learners must provide documentation that these programs have been implemented appropriately. And this documentation must include translated parent notices with the required compliance content included, which is often too difficult or costly for districts to afford. The new English Learner compliance collections make this process easy and affordable for all.”

One of three English Learner collections is right for any school district to use. Districts can choose from a Title III only collection, an English Learner (core English Language Development Programs) only collection, or a combined Title III/English Learner collection.

Annual subscriptions for school districts are based on the number of English Learners (ELs) served by the district. Subscriptions begin as low as $950 per year plus $250/language. For more information about the service, contact Monica Munar at 425.977.2103 or monica@transact.com.
