English Language Learners

Overview

What is an English Language Learner?

At the time of enrollment, parents/ guardians fill out a Home Language Survey (HLS).  If they indicate, or it is observed, that the family speaks another language, then the student must take the CELDT test with 30 days. 

If the student passes, they are deemed 'Initial Fluent/ English-Proficient' (IFEP) and are placed in a mainstream English program.

If the student does not pass, then they are deemed 'English Learner' and take English Language Development (ELD) classes.

ELD classes will be a part of their schedule until they can be reclassified as English-Proficient (RFEP). 

English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC)
