BECS NEWS

ACCESS Assessment Information (English Language Learners) - January/ February 2021

ACCESS assessment time is quickly approaching! ACCESS is an assessment that is required by the Colorado Department of Education and is given annually to any student identified as an English language learner (EL). ACCESS is required to be taken until a student scores fluent on ACCESS and has a body of evidence that supports the student's English Language proficiency. As it is a proficiency assessment, there is no need for students to study for it. It is mainly an opportunity for students to demonstrate all the ways that they understand and can communicate in English through speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Parents of identified students will receive information regarding their child taking ACCESS soon! If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Land.

Intent to Return 20/21 School Year

We are entering the time of year where Bromley East Charter School begins to make enrollment projections for the coming year. It is critically important for us to determine how many open slots are available in each grade so that Registration may begin to fill any vacancies during the open registration period.


We ask that every current BECS family complete our Intent to Return form declaring your family’s intentions for the coming year. Please fill out one form for each of your students.

The deadline for the completed Intent to Return process is Friday, February 26th, 2021.

Please note: The Intent to Return Process is only for existing students/families. If you seek new enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year, please see the details below.


New Student Enrollment

The enrollment window for the 2021/22 school year is December 14th, 2020, through February 28th, 2021. The application deadline to be included in our 2021 lottery is February 28th, no later than 4:00 p.m. Returning Bromley East Charter School students are automatically enrolled at BECS for the following year. They are not required to participate in the lottery process. If there are more eligible students than openings in any class, a random selection (computerized lottery) will be used to select students for any available spaces not to exceed the maximum class size. This lottery will take place in March 2021. Please contact our registrar Ms. Elizabeth Sumerix, with any questions. Additional information can also be found on the BECS website.
