10/5/2005  RIDE - student's immigrant status in Oct enrollment reporting  Dr. Ken Gu - SEA 
I've received a couple of calls on how to report a student's immigrant status. Here is the federal definition under Title III: The term "immigrant children and youth," which is defined in section 3301(6) of Title III, refers to individuals who: (A) are aged 3 through 21; (B) were not born in any State; and (C) have not been attending one or more schools in any one or more States for more than 3 full academic years. If you have an LEP program in your district, most (but not all) of the immigrant students should be enrolled in the program. Contact your LEP program coordinator for an up-todate listing. Hope this helps. Call or email for any additional questions (Ken Gu, 222-8957; Thank you!
