English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

ELPAC Logo

 

State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of English language proficiency (ELP) to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve. As of February 1, 2018 the California Department of Education (CDE) has transitioned from the CELDT to the ELPAC as the state ELP assessment. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. It is comprised of two separate ELP assessments: one for the initial identification of students as English learners (ELs), and a second for the annual summative assessment to measure a student’s progress in learning English and to identify the student's level of ELP. Visit the California Department of Education ELPAC page for more information.

English Learner Roadmap

California English Learner Roadmap

The California English Learner Roadmap was passed by the State Board of Education on July 12, 2017. This Roadmap is intended to assist the California Department of Education in guiding school districts in order to welcome, understand, and educate the diverse population of English Learner students who attend California public schools.

This Roadmap allows students to participate in a twenty-first century education from early childhood through twelfth grade. This allows English learners to attain high levels of English proficiency, master grade level standards, and create opportunities in developing proficiency in multiple languages.
