Effective 2019/2020, the CDE has developed a list of Language Instruction Programs (LIPs) for English Learners. Previously, districts reported English Learner participation in English language acquisition programs by “course” and not by student. Districts will now report this data by student in the SPRG file.
Students will be required to have a Program Eligibility Start Date (PGM.ESD) and Program Eligibility End Date (PGM.EED). Since the LIP codes became effective this year, the Program Eligibility Start Date (PGM.ESD) needs to be after 7/1/2019. Going forward, the date can be earlier than the enrollment record as districts are not required to close out LIP program records. LIP program records remain open until the student is exited from the LIP program.
Displayed below are the new LIP Program Codes (PGM) and the Retired Instructional Strategy Codes.
|New Education Program Code||Name of New Education Program Code||Retired Instructional Strategy Code||Name of Retired|
