What is a LAT Meeting?

"The 'LAT' refers to a language assessment team consisting of designated employees at each school who are responsible for ensuring the identification, adequacy of instruction, and monitoring of ELLs." (DOJ Agreement, Paragraph 15)


"Establish a school-based ELL placement and reclassification team... In order to make effective instructional and assessment decisions for ELLs, districts should consider establishing a school-based team charged with reviewing relevant ELL data and making instructional decisions for each student. School-based teams should be composed of educators, administrators, and/or support service staff that regularly interacts with the student" (DESE Transitional Guidance for ELLs, p. 15).

Who is on the LAT? (DESE Transitional Guidance for ELLs, p. 15)
  • the student’s ESL or bilingual or SEI content teacher,
  • school guidance counselors, psychologists, special education teachers, or related providers if the student receives such services,
  • the school’s assistant principal or principal,
  • parents when making instructional and assessment decisions for ELLs
