One responsibility of the EL Point Person is leading key compliance processes:

  • Reclassification: Per the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) ELs who meet the ACCESS (or Alt ACCESS) criteria and who have sufficient evidence from school are reclassified (exited) from the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program. There are two sub-processes here:
    • General Reclassification
    • Dual-Identified Reclassification (for ELs with IEPs)
  • Monitoring of Former ELs: Per PDE Guidelines, ELs who have been reclassified need to be actively monitored for two years. This process involves reviewing reclassified students’ progress in core academic classes, and making sure these students are not struggling.

Below you will find instructions and resources for completing each process. Please note that the instructions for SY18-19 will be kept up as reference until the instructions for SY19-20 are sent out.
