TELPAS Testing

Beginning next week through the end of March, our ESL students (including parent denials) will be assessed through the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) as required by the state. The Texas Education Agency developed TELPAS to meet state and federal testing requirements for assessing the English language proficiency of ELLs in for language domains: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

It is important that students arrive on time during testing days and have eaten breakfast. Since this is part of our state assessment system, we will be having closed campus on certain days. The campus will be closed on Tuesday, February 25, Thursday, February 27 through Thursday, March 5. This means that there will be no parent and student lunches, no conferences with teachers, or any parent volunteers. Thank you for your cooperation!
