English Language Learners’ Progress

Elementary, Middle, and High Schools (when the schools have at least 20 English Language Learners)

Purpose of Indicator

To determine if students who are non-native-English speakers are meeting growth targets to learn the English Language.

What This Means

How non-English speaking students are progressing in learning English.

What makes up the indicator that leads to a Rating?

Scores from the ACCESS assessment, which has scores in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Something To Think About

Does the school provide extra programs and supports for English Language Learners? 

If there are fewer than 20 English language learners in a school, then schools are NOT rated on this indicator.

Key Message

Non-native speakers will continue to grow as a population in our state. It’s important to recognize the unique learning needs of non-native speakers.
