Coachella Valley Unified Sch. Dist. v. State of California, No. A120667

By FindLaw Staff on July 31, 2009 11:06 AM

Trial court's denial of petition for writ of mandate to require defendants to abide by the No Child Left Behind Act requisites for assessing limited English proficient students is affirmed where: 1) the NCLBA gives to participating states the discretion to devise an appropriate assessment plan for LEP students; 2) the State Board of Education's testing purpose to measure LEP students' mastery of academic content standards in English is not incompatible with the NCLBA; and 3) the State Board did not abuse its discretion in deciding to test LEP students in English, with accommodations.
