Important Regents motion related to CR Part 154-3.2: In response to requests to expand the current CR Part 154-2.3 limitation of no more than two contiguous grade spans for ENL and bilingual support, a proposal for an emergency measure was passed, which is applicable for the 2018-2019 school year. Districts with fewer than 30 ELLs can apply for a waiver to expand support to no more than three contiguous grade spans for supporting ELLs in grades 1-12. For more information please click here.
