Dear IEP Community:

It has now been 5 months since the annual conference in Portland. There were many interesting and informative presentations, and we hope you will enjoy reading the articles in this issue based on some of those presentations—particularly if they are ones you did not have the opportunity to attend!

We are once again delighted to bring you a diverse selection of articles and features. This issue highlights topics from student perceptions of English-only policies to how to help students transition from IEPs to academic programs. This is our second issue featuring a member profile, and we couldn’t be happier about helping you all get to know each other a little better—one member at a time! (Please contact us if you would like to be interviewed for a Meet the Member feature in a future issue.)

We would love to hear from you about what you’d like to see in upcoming issues. Please feel free to contact one or both of us with your suggestions, requests, and ideas. This newsletter, like this community, is for you!


Krista Bittenbender Royal is a senior instructor at the University of South Florida’s English Language Program, INTO USF.


Christina Quartararo is the assistant director of The Language Connection: the English Language Institute of St. John’s University.
