How are English Language Learners identified?
 
Students who meet the criteria of ELL are identified through the Home Language Survey completed at the time of enrollment. 
 
Once identified, how does an ELL student exit the program? 
 
Once a student is identified as ELL/LEP, he or she cannot exit the program until achieveing FEP (Full English Proficiency) on the ACCESS for ELLS test (Must earn a composite score of 5.0 and a literacy score of 4.5). 
 
What happens when a student exits the program? 
 
Once a student passes the ACCESS test he/she will be monitored for two years.  The ELL teacher will communicate with the student's classroom teachers to check on the student's academic progress.  If needed, additional supports may be considered.  Once a student exits the ELL program, accommodations on standardized tests can no longer be afforded.
