Hello Brahma Parents and Guardians of English Learners,

Our English Learners will take the ELPAC exam on the following dates based on their grade level:

  • 9th grade: February 3 at 8:00 a.m.

  • 10th grade: February 4 at 8:00 a.m.

  • 11th grade: February 9 at 8:00 a.m.

  • 12th grade: February 10 at 8:00 a.m.

The ELPAC exam is a test that will measure your child’s progress in learning the English language. The ELPAC will test their abilities in reading, writing, listening and speaking. They will also take the district writing assessment during this testing period.

Please carefully read the directions below and review it with your child as it will provide important information about their ELPAC test. A copy of this notification letter has also been sent to your child’s school email:

  • Report to the LINC (DBHS library) at 8:00 a.m. on the day of your test. DO NOT go to your period one class.

  • Bring your DBHS chromebook and charger with you. If you do not have a DBHS chromebook, one will be provided to you when you check in for the test.

  • Bring your student ID card.

  • Bring your personal earbuds/headphones. If you do not have earbuds/headphones, they will be provided to you.

  • The test will take approximately 3.5 to 4 hours. When you finish with your test, you will go to class based on your schedule.

  • Bring your backpacks and personal belongings with you for later in the school day. You may not use a cell phone or any notes/materials from your classes during the ELPAC test.

This test is important because it is one of the criteria used to determine your child’s readiness to reclassify as an English Learner. Please make sure they get a good night’s rest and eat a healthy breakfast.

They may prepare for the ELPAC by taking some of the online practice tests. Click on this LINK!

If you have any questions about the ELPAC, please email Mrs. Cho ( or Mrs. Flores (

We look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks for the ELPAC! Good luck!
