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.

The Charter Center is committed to a sector built upon accountability and results for kids. Accordingly, we have conducted an analysis of New York City charter school state test scores that will allow the public to better understand the performance of individual schools and the sector overall. It is our hope that this report spurs conversations, further investigation and best practice sharing.
