OPPORTUNITY: ELPA21 Recruitment Continues

Oregon is continuing to recruit students for participation in the ELPA21 Field Test, which will debut on February 2, 2015. The ELPA21 Consortium States are focusing the final recruitment push on grades Kindergarten and 1st, although additional participants will be accepted in all other grade bands as well. Participating school staff will receive Professional Development Units (PDUs) when they participate in the administration training and administer the field test to a group of students. Additionally, districts that sign up a certain percentage of their EL population will receive discounted attendance at 2015 COSA events, including COSA's ELPA21 Invited Symposium in March 2015. The Symposium will be an opportunity in which administrators can come together to share experiences with the ELPA21 field test, including what worked well and what might need improvement.

To learn more about the ELPA21 Field Test and to register your class or school to participate, please visit www.elpa21.org/fieldtest. Registration will continue until January 16, 2015. If you have additional questions, please contact ODE at ode.elpa21fieldtest@state.or.us eMail.
