I have represented school districts in the past and I've seen this issue come up from time to time. Generally,The Equal Opportunity Education Act requires public schools to take appropriate action to help English learner students overcome language barriers and ensure their ability to participate equally in school. If the school is not providing this to your child, then they may be violating federal and state law. You may want to consider just writing a formal demand letter That they comply with state law or else you may file a complaint with your local office of administrative hearings, which is the body that normally hears these education complaints, or that you may file a complaint with the district regarding this following the uniform complaint procedures that most districts have. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for a demand letter (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation.
