ELPAC TESTING

It's that time of year for our annual English Learner Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). This will be given through Zoom this year and will take place after your student's regular instructional day. Your child will only be given this assessment if they are an English Learner.


The purpose of this assessment is to see if your student is proficient in Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking. If they are proficient in these areas, they can be Reclassified out of the EL Program.


Your student's teacher will be given the schedule and they will let you know when your student will test. Your student will also be provided the zoom link for the assessment. Prior to their assessment, please make sure they have had a good night's sleep and have eaten a healthy lunch so can be ready to do their best.
