Overview

On September 11, 2018, the Kansas English Language Profiency Standards (KELP) for English Learners were adopted by the Kansas Board of Education. Beyond understanding common English usage, ELs need to understand the language used for grade-level instruction in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and other content areas. The standards highlight and amplify the critical language, knowledge about language, and skills for using language that are necessary for ELs to be successful in school.
