In the 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 89. Adaptations for Special Populations. Subchapter BB, the Commissioner's rules states that all school districts that are required to provide bilingual education and/or English as a Second Language (ESL) program must establish and operate a Language Proficiency Assessment Committee (LPAC).
The LPAC uses the Framework for the LPAC Process Manual which includes clarification of the legal requirements and provides documents and forms to facilitate the process. The manual integrates state and Title III of Public Law 107-110 (No Child Left Behind) requirements regarding the following:
- Identification and placement
- Parent notification
- Annual review
