I request a waiver of the placement of my child in the school's structured/sheltered English immersion program for the following reason:
__ My child possesses good English language skills. (Education Code 311(a))

__ I believe that my child has special needs and that an alternate course of study is better suited to his/her educational development. (Education Code 311(c))
I understand that the objective for my child is to be taught English as rapidly and effectively as possible. I have been provided a full written description of the intent and content of the structured English immersion program; any alternative courses of study offered by the district and made available to my child; all educational opportunities offered by the district and made available to my child; and the educational materials to be used in the different educational program choices.
