English Language Proficiency Standards

Adopted December 10, 2013. These new standards were strategically designed to simplify and streamline the process of learning in English in order to meet college-and-career-ready standards in academic subject areas. The ten standards highlight language functions and forms that English Language Learners (ELLs) need in order to suceed. The correspondences between the ELP standards and specific ELA, Math Practice and Science Practice standads are clearly identified.
Complete ELP Standards document235 pages, pdf, with correspondence matrix introducing each grade level, electronic bookmarks and live links between pages.
