Distributing Individualized State Test Score Information to Parents

Charter school parents do not have access to the DOE parent NYC Schools Account to view their child’s standardized test score results. The responsibility of communicating these standardized test score results, such as those from the state grades 3-8 ELA and Math exam, lies solely with the charter school. Most charter schools send out a letter to parents following exam administration with test score information.

How do schools identify ELL students once they are enrolled in the charter school?

Under federal mandate, schools must administer a home language survey at the time of entrance. If a student is identified as potentially ELL after the home language survey and informal interview, the school must administer a valid and reliable English language proficiency assessment to determine if the student is an ELL.
