English Language Proficiency Standards

English Language Proficiency Standards

The new ELP standards focus on the critical language, knowledge about language and language skills present in college-and-career-ready standards.  These skills are essential for English Language Learners (ELLs) as they work toward academic success.  Look for correspondences to the practices and standards identified in the CCSS and Next Generation Science Standards.

Student Growth Tracking Tool

This tool allows teachers to monitor and record student language abilities in each grade throughout the year and focus one or more English Language Proficiency Standards that already correspond to Common Core Standards, or Math, and Science Practices. these were created by Nadya Bush from ESD 171.
