Identifying students who need help learning English is important so they can get the support they need to do well in English Language Arts/Literacy, Mathematics, Science, and other Subject areas in school. The Summative ELPAC is the test used to measure how well students whose status is 'English Language Learner' understand English. Information from the test tells your child's teacher about the areas in which your child needs extra support and helps determine if your student can be Reclassified because they no longer need language support.
English Language Learner students will take the Summative ELPAC this March. Please see your school administration to determine what days your student will be administered the ELPAC.
You are an important part of your child's education. To help your child get ready for the tets, you can:
- Read to your child or have them read to you
- Use pictures and ask your child to tell you what they see happening
- Provide your child with opportunities to use English outside of school
- Talk with your child's teacher about your child's listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills
