Here’s what you need to know:
We are pleased to announce that our school district has been selected to participate in the state field test of the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California, the ELPAC, which will replace the current California English Language Development Test (CELDT). This is a great opportunity for our district.
The purpose of the field test is to gather information about the design of the test and the performance of the test questions. This year’s field test is happening in specially-selected schools across California. Some English learners and English-proficient students within our school district have been chosen by the state to participate in this field test.
If you would like to know if your child has been selected for the field test, or if you have any questions, contact Cookie Gray at the district office in the English Testing and Monitoring department. She can be reached at (760) 244-4411 ext. 7218.
