English Language Learners (ELL)

English Language Learners’ scores on the Washington English Language Proficiency Assessment determine eligibility for English Language Development (ELD) services. Depending on students’ scores on the WELPA and other district and state English Language Arts measures, ELL students may be placed in ELL classes targeting the development of conversation, reading, and writing skills in English. This means courses may be repeated, if needed. Every lesson, assignment and test in these courses are aligned with Washington State ELD standards and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.
