Our website is currently in development, however, some of our information links will remain active during this time.
ELPAC Summative Testing window:
February 1 through May 31 annually. Test results will be mailed to the student's home address as soon as the ELPAC testing company scores the test. This usually occurs at or before the beginning of the next school year.
November through January annually. Students who meet all the criteria are eligible to be reclassified as fluent English proficient (RFEP) and no longer need designated ELD services. Parents have the right to participate in this process and are notified by US mail if their child may be reclassified. The criteria for reclassification are available at the link below.
LCAP Parent and Community Partnership meetings:
(English and Spanish). Announcements for upcoming Zoom meetings will be sent out through ParentSquare. Parents are encouraged to join the meetings to voice their thoughts or just listen to gain a better understanding of the LCAP.
Advisory Committee Meetings:
Click on the link "Advisory Committees" in the menu to learn about the committees, review the minutes of previous meetings, and find out when the next meetings are being held (via Zoom).
When parents/guardians first enroll their child in a California school, they must complete a Home Language Survey (HLS) indicating what language their child speaks and understands most frequently in the home. If parents/guardians list a language other than English, there is a written notification on the HLS that lets them know their child will be administered an English proficiency test (the Initial ELPAC).
To understand the assessment, the California Department of Education (CDE) has informational videos on the ELPAC. Parents are encouraged to watch the videos, attend the Annual Informational Meeting for Parents of English Learners at their school site, and contact their child's teacher or the District English Learner Program Specialists if they have further questions.
