ELL Reclassification and Exiting

Students exit from the ELD program once they have reached proficiency on Oregon’s English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21), or the academic team convenes to determine proficiency through alternative measures. Parents and classroom teachers are notified in writing when a student is reclassified to monitor status.

It is a state regulation that students who exit the ELD program be monitored for four years to ensure that they are successful in the regular classroom. Measures of student success can be classroom grades, Oregon state assessment results, district reading and math assessments, and curriculum-based assessments. At each grading period, classroom teachers are given a “Monitor Reporting Survey.“ If this survey indicates that students are experiencing academic difficulties, the academic team will convene to determine appropriate educational supports, or considerations to reenroll the student into the ELD Program, with parental support.

Monitoring is ended after four years, if the results of the monitoring process indicate that the student is having success in the mainstream classroom, as well as demonstrating English proficiency.
