A student will be eligible for reclassification once he/she scores a profile of Proficient (Level 4 or 5) in all tested domains. The student will then be reclassified as a “monitored” student and will no longer need to take ELPT. Monitoring will take place for 2 years.
LEAs must update the student’s EL status in SIS to reflect this change. If proficient students are not updated in SIS by October 1, the student will need to take ELPT or the school will receive a zero for accountability purposes.
After four years, students with disabilities may exit before achieving Proficient on ELPT if the IEP team and/or SBLC has determined that the student is unable to make adequate progress in their language acquisition because of their disability. The IEP team/SBLC has the ability to exit EL students with significant cognitive disabilities sooner.
