TELPAS for ESL students will run from February 18 through April 5
Dear parents of ELL students (including parent denials)
English Language Learners (ELLs) in grade K-8, including parent denials are required to be assessed through the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS).
The Texas Education Agency developed TELPAS to meet state and federal testing requirements for assessing the English language proficiency of ELLs in four language domains: listening, speaking, reading and writing. TELPAS assesses the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), which are part of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
The assessment components for grades K–1 and 2–12 differ in the following ways:
• Grades K–1: Holistically rated listening, speaking, reading, and writing assessments based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions.
• Grades 2–12: Online reading and listening and speaking tests and holistically rated student writing collections .
For these assessments, teachers are trained to use proficiency level descriptors to determine the English language proficiency levels of students.
State testing calendar for TELPAS is February 11, 2019 through April 5, 2019.
Our school is going to assess students between February 18 and March 28.
2018 Federal Report Card for our campus is now available at 2018 Federal Report Cards or is also available on the Texas Education Agency’s website at: https://tea.texas.gov/Finance_and_Grants/Grants/Federal_Report_Card/
Also, hard copies of our campus 2018 Federal Report Card is available to parents on request at our front office.
