Students that qualify for ELL services are assessed in the four domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing through an English language screener proficiency test  to determine their level of English proficiency.  Students who score a Level 1 to Level 4.9 on the screener test are eligible for services and will participate in the annual language proficiency test, ACCESS for ELLs (Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State to State for English Language Learners), each spring until they score an English Language proficiency level 5, which indicates the student is proficient in English.

English Language Learners will participate in the annual English Language Proficiency test (ACCESS for ELLs) April 27, 2015-May 30, 2015.
