For a student who is an English Learner and has a disability, the IEP team must carefully consider the impact the disability has on the student’s English Language proficiency and if the student has met their linguistically appropriate, standards-aligned IEP goals. To determine if it may be appropriate to reclassify a student from English Learner to Reclassified Fluent English Proficient, the IEP team must determine if the student possesses the strategies and skills to access and progress in grade-level content separately from their English language development. It is important to understand that a student might retain eligibility for special education and related services but may no longer need English Learner services, including integrated and designated ELD instructions.
