ELPA Test Window Closes May 10, 2012

As a reminder, the ELPA test window will close on Thursday, May 10. By May 10, districts must ensure that all students eligible to receive ELD services have completed the ELPA. ELPA participation requirements are addressed in Memorandum No. 007-2011-12 - ELL Participation in annual English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA), published on April 2, 2012.

In order to be consistent with Federal Title III law, once the school year has begun, districts have two weeks from the date of student enrollment to identify a student as Limited English Proficient (LEP, ELL). Therefore, for students enrolling within the last two weeks of the official testing window (April 26, 2012 - May 10, 2012) but who are not identified as LEP (ELL) in that timeframe, districts will not be required to administer the English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) to the student. If an assessment is or has been administered, AMAO inclusion rules apply.
