Welcome Welcome to all the new LPAC Administrators that are joining the elite LPAC team.
Monitoring of Recent Immigrants Students coded, “Recent Immigrant”, must be monitored every nine weeks in order to be in compliance with state and federal mandates. In previous years, we sent the “Immigrant Education Program Academic Progress Checklist” to elementary campuses and had teachers fill out the form. This year we will not be sending these forms to the campuses. The process for this year will be for teachers to document the interventions they are using with Recent Immigrants in ARMS. In the OSP system, under ARMS, teachers are able to see which students are coded Recent Immigrant.
Monitoring of Recent Immigrants cont. Teachers must first select the Code H in order to begin entering the interventions. Teachers will input the interventions under, How will this intervention be evaluated for student success? (Evidence of Impact)
Monitoring of Recent Immigrants cont. Please have teachers consider the following reasons when entering interventions for the Recent Immigrant(s) in ARMS.

Monitoring of Recent Immigrants cont. The attendance clerk can run an Immigrant Report from Cognos in order for you to know which students at your campus are coded Recent Immigrant (s).
