Limited English Proficient

Limited English Proficient (LEP)

Nampa schools are home to one of the state’s largest student population of non-English speakers. The state and federal government provide funding to assist districts in ensuring these students gain English fluency and that these students also master the same academic standards expected of all students. Funding is used for specially trained teachers and assistants and for training and materials to assist in meeting the needs of these students.

Our district provides a variety of approaches to support LEP students as they learn English. The approaches depend on the school the child attends and his or her level of knowledge and skills. Some schools provide instruction in Spanish, others provide Spanish-language support, and others provide English as a Second Language courses.

Our Limited English Proficiency Services are coordinated by Heidi Rahn, 468-4601 ext. 1065.
