The U.S. Department of Education's Office of English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement for Limited English Proficient Students (OELA) (formerly the Office for Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs) conducts an annual survey of state educational agencies (SEAs) in the United States. The survey gathers information in three areas: (1) the enrollment levels of limited English proficient (LEP) students; (2) the educational condition of reported LEP students; and (3) the services received by LEP students. This report is based primarily on survey responses for the 1999-2000 school year. (EV)
