Language Assistance Plan
The Language Assistance Plan at OHVA includes policies, procedural guidance, and supporting documents to ensure appropriate and timely language assistance to national origin minority, Limited English Proficient parents/guardians (LEP parents) that ensures they are notified in a language they understand of school activities, including activities related to and associated with their role as learning coaches, and other information and matters that are called to the attention of other parents. LEP parents may or may not have children who qualify for EL services; LEP parents must receive language assistance in a language they understand regardless of the EL eligibility of their children enrolled in OHVA.
