The EL Point Person is an advocate for English Learners. This page contains information on student support responsibilities.


Testing Accommodations for ELs

EL Points help identify accommodations needed for ELs.


ACCESS Test

The ACCESS test is administered annually to monitor students’ progress in learning academic English, meeting the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for monitoring and reporting ELs’ progress. The EL Point leads the ACCESS testing. More directions will come from Assessment for SY19-20.


Maintaining EL Data

One way EL Points help ensure EL Data is accurate is to help correct errors in Infinite Campus data through Certify. Certify is a data quality initiative that helps ensure correct data, since the data entered for each EL impacts instruction, resource allocation, and accountability. The EL Points will receive an email notification when an EL at their school is missing a key data point.

Another way EL Points maintain EL Data is by maintaining the EL Data Envelopes. See page 30 of our handbook for detailed instructions. Here’s a table below on what goes into the EL Data Envelopes:

 


ELs with IEPs

English Learners with Individual Identification Plans are called Dual-Identified English Learners. Here are some specific resources to help support those students.

–> Collaboration with the Special Education Compliance Monitor (SPECM) at your school is necessary to support these learners. Here is a consultation form to collaborate.
