Reclassification of English Learners

Why is this important?

Once ELs attain English proficiency as defined in the state reclassification procedure, they must be reclassified as former ELs. The academic progress of former ELs must be actively monitored by district personnel for a period of two (2) years after reclassification.

An EL must demonstrate the ability to access challenging academic content and interact with other students and teachers both academically and socially in an English language setting in order to be considered for reclassification. Evidence of this ability is demonstrated by the student on the annual English language proficiency assessment, ACCESS for ELLs®, and gathered by teachers using standardized language use inventories

How do I get started?

Attend training with your building ELD teacher. The training will include a description of the language inventories that content area teachers will complete as part of the reclassification process. The ELD teacher will collect your language inventories and use them to finalize the online reclassification tool and cover sheets in preparation for the release of ACCESS scores.

Please contact the English Language Development (ELD) teacher for further collaboration as needed and submit the language inventories by the due date.
