28 Days of Kindness
This month we are challenging your student to be kind to others, even when it’s hard.We are partnering with you to help your child grow in kindness. Most children learn new behaviors by copying those around them; we have a powerful opportunity and responsibility to teach kindness by example.

The ACCESS for ELLs and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs are English language proficiency assessments used to meet federal and state legislative requirements.
These assessments are used to monitor English learners’ progress as they develop academic language skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. ACCESS for ELLs and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs scores provide valuable information about English language development to families and schools.
Families can use proficiency level scores and descriptions to understand the progress their child is making and to engage with schools to support their child’s learning. Teachers and schools can use the scores to monitor student progress in acquiring English, plan instruction, and evaluate their language development programs. Schools also use these scores to determine if a student is ready to exit an English language program. School- and district-level test results are used in federal and state accountability measurements.
All English learners in grades K–12 in public schools are required to participate annually in an English language proficiency assessment. With very few exceptions, all English learners take the ACCESS for ELLs.
