‘”Tools and Resources for Providing a Language Assistance Program,” the second chapter of the English Learner Tool Kit, has been published on the web by the Office of English Language Acquisition (OELA), U.S. Department of Education (the Department). The Tool Kit is intended to help state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) in meeting their obligations to ELs.
