Comprehensive ELL Education Plan (CEEP) due by October 19th, 2018
2018-2019 CR Part 154 Reporting Requirements
As in previous years, all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) are required under Part 154 of the Commissioner’s Regulations (CR Part 154), to develop and submit a CR Part 154 Comprehensive ELL Education Plan (CEEP) to meet the educational needs of English Language Learners (ELLs)/Multilingual Learners (MLLs) (CR Part 154-2[b]) as well as an annual Data/Information Report as required under CR Part 154-2[c]. The CEEP is completed online via the SED Monitoring and Vendor Performance System which is accessed through the NYSED Application Business Portal.
All LEAs must keep their completed CEEPs on file in the LEAs’ main office and make them available for review upon request by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). NYSED reserves the right to publish on its website the completed CR Part 154 CEEP. In addition, all school administrators must review the plan and keep a copy on file within the school building. Please note that the revised 2018-2019 CEEP now requires submission of information regarding each district’s dropout prevention plan (please see CEEP Section I).
The CEEP is divided into multiple sections in which LEAs must outline how they are addressing the needs of their ELLs/MLLs and describe their strategic plan for providing grade-appropriate, linguistically and academically rigorous instruction that will allow ELLs/MLLs to meet the Next Generation Learning Standards in alignment with the expectations set forth in the New York State Blueprint for ELL/MLL Success. When completing the CEEP it is recommended that LEAs familiarize themselves with the principles outlined in the Blueprint.
