  1. Good Luck! I think we all need it. I was very impressed by the detail of your action research plan. It looks like you are creating a lot of documents for this action plan. Would these documents become part of your school's beginning of the year documents?

  4. I am familiar with LPAC process because I was one of three in charge of the process in our district. We currently have 45 schools in our district. My advise to you is that the persons involved understand the process and the impact it has on the LEP students. Good luck and let me know if I can help in any way.
