New York State, as well as other states in the nation, is experiencing an increase in the number of new immigrants who enter our schools with limited or interrupted formal education in their home countries. These are limited English proficient (LEP) students who come from a home where a language other than English is spoken and enter a School in the United States after grade two. Upon enrollment the LEP students have had at least two years below expected grade level in reading and in mathematics.
