English Learners/ELD

  • English Language Learners (ELLs)

    When a student is first enrolled in a California school, if a parent indicates another language on the Home Language Survey (HLS), the student is assessed for English Language Proficiency, using the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC). Based on the results of this assessment, a student is either classified as: Initial Fluent English Proficient (IFEP) or English Language Learner (ELL). If a student is identified as an ELL, the student receives English Language Development (ELD) services, Designated and Integrated, until the student becomes Reclassified Fluent English Proficient (RFEP). In order for an ELL to become RFEP, they must meet the following criteria: Score proficient on SBAC or iReady, Annual ELPAC, Teacher recommendation and Parent Permission. Once a student is exited from the EL Program, they are still monitored for three years to ensure that they do not need additional services.

    English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

    ELAC is a school-level committee comprised of parents, staff, and community members designated to advise school officials on English Language Learner (ELL) programs and services offered. ELAC makes recommendations to the SSC on the programs and services for ELLs and supports Parent Outreach activities at the school which are identified within the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
