  • Castañeda v Pickard


Two obligations:

  • Program to overcome Language Barriers

    • (as quickly as possible)

  • Provide access to same core curriculum

    • (and remedy any deficits incurred while learning English)


Three Prongs of Castañeda

  • Are based on scientific research or theory

  • Have adequate resources to fully implement the program research or theory

  • Produce results that show the program is effective – an evaluation


Two ways to do this

  • Simultaneously:

    • Full access to core + learning English

  • Sequentially:

    • First learn English

    • Then full access and catch-up

      How do you determine if a program is truly simultaneous or sequential?


Annual Program Evaluation Cycle


Catch-up Plan

  • Whether a program is sequential by design or by default, students must be afforded the opportunity to meet the same expectation levels that all other students achieve.

    • Before reclassification

    • After reclassification

  • Hence the catch-up plan
