A Minute with the LASes

TELPAS continues and Spanish Learners' Assessment window opens!

Just a few reminders...

  • Spanish teachers in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade - The window for the Assessment of Spanish Learners' progress is from Monday, Feb 26 to March 30. Some of us did the Part II but didn't complete the Part I of the training on the Assessment Tool. If that is your case, you can still rate Listening and Speaking, but cannot rate Reading and Writing (until you complete the Part I of the training). Judy Musgrave will come to train us here at school on a TBD date. All ratings need to be in Aware by April 6th.
  • We will continue the TELPAS online practice for the Reading, Listening and Speaking tests. See the calendar below.
  • This week's TELPAS writing sample is on Past Tense and is due on Thursday March 1st.
  • The 4th grade LPAC for Assessment will be on Thursday, March 1st.
