Agenda Item Summary: Over half (52.8%) of Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) students were from linguistically and culturally diverse families as of Spring 2021. Within the ACPS LCD population there are 122 home languages and 109 countries of birth. The Linguistically and Culturally Diverse Student Fact Sheet SY 2020-2021 is being shared with members of the Alexandria Council of PTA’s (PTAC) and PTAC’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee per their request to assist them in
their work this year and engaging with all families. An updated factsheet for SY 2021-2022 will be produced in December 2021.
Background: The Office of English Learner Services produces the Linguistically and Culturally Diverse Student Fact Sheet each school year to provide an overview of the diversity within our school division. The document provides summary enrollment data of students with a primary home language other than English and whose cultural values and background may differ from the mainstream culture (our Linguistically and Culturally Diverse [LCD] population).
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the information in this memo and attachment.
