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).
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.
