Testing Accommodations for Students Identified as Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and English Language Learners (ELLs)

Schools may provide testing accommodations to students identified as Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and English Language Learners (ELLs) as needed, on all NYS ELA and content-area assessments (i.e., Mathematics, Science and Social Studies). Districts/schools must make all necessary arrangements to make these accommodations available for LEP/ELLs who need them. A list of NYS approved accommodations may be found in the School Administrator's Manual (SAM) for each respective test, here. Reference this resource for a list of accommodations and exemptions.
