Students in grades PK through 5 (or through 6, if grade 6 is clustered with elementary grades) who are counted for funding in the bilingual education program must be served by bilingual-certified staff members.

Students in grades PK through 5 (or through 6, if grade 6 is clustered with elementary grades) who are counted for funding in the ESL education program must be served by ESL-certified staff members.

6.10.2 Students in Grades 6 through 8

Students in grades 6 through 8 (if grade 6 is not clustered with elementary grades [PK–5]) must be served by at least one teacher who is certified in ESL for that grade level and is responsible for meeting the linguistic needs of the ELL students.

6.10.3 Students in Grades 9 through 12

Students in grades 9 through 12 may be counted for funding in a bilingual or ESL education program even if they are served by staff members who are not bilingual/ESL-certified, but only if the staff members have received professional development in sheltered instruction.
