English Language Learner Accomplishments!

Several English Language Learners from across the district were celebrated for exiting the English as a Second Language (ESP) program. These students were among the 29 students that exited the ESL program in the 2021-2022 school-year. This accomplishment was achieved by achieving the required score on the WIDA ACCESS assessment. The WIDA ACCESS is a rigorous, 4-hour test test of English proficiency that includes speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills. This is in addition to the TCAP assessment that all students take at the end of the school year.
