The U.S. Departments of Education and Justice have completed a 10-chapter tool kit designed to help public schools ensure that English-language learners have access to a high-quality education.

The tool kit is a companion to guidance the departments released in January to remind schools of their federal obligations to the nation's nearly 5 million English-learners.

Included in the kit are tools and resources for identifying English-language learners; delivering high-quality ELL programs; evaluating the effectiveness of such programs; preventing unnecessary segregation of English-learners; providing qualified staff; and ensuring access to programs and activities, among other objectives.
