Language Assessment Team Facilitators (LAT-F)
"The 'LAT' refers to a language assessment team consisting of designated employees at each school who are responsible for ensuring the identification, adequacy of instruction, and monitoring of ELLs." (DOJ Agreement, Paragraph 15)
"Establish a school-based ELL placement and reclassification team... In order to make effective instructional and assessment decisions for ELLs, districts should consider establishing a school-based team charged with reviewing relevant ELL data and making instructional decisions for each student. School-based teams should be composed of educators, administrators, and/or support service staff that regularly interacts with the student" (DESE Transitional Guidance for ELLs, p. 15).
