ELD (English Language Development)

Welcome!

All students new to public schools in California who speak a language other than English at home and all returning students in the ELD program, until they qualify to exit the program, are required by law to take an English language proficiency test each year.

New students take the Initial ELPAC to determine their level of English proficiency and the results are used to determine the amount of language support they receive during the school year.

ALL students in the ELD program take the Summative ELPAC in the spring. It tests each student's progress towards acquiring English proficiency and the results are used to determine the amount of support he/she will receive the following school year, or if he/she is ready to be reclassified as fluent in English and qualified to exit the program. The official results are sent home as soon as they become available, hopefully by the end of the school year in early June.

Please join us at the ELAC Meeting to learn more about the ELD program and to get suggestions for making the most of your time at Hugo Reid and within the community:
