English Language Proficiency Assessment

See the source image
The ELPAC is the test that is used to measure how well students in kindergarten through twelfth grade understand English when it is not their primary language. Information from the ELPAC helps your child's teachers provide support in the right areas. 

How Can I Help My Child Get Ready for the ELPAC?
You are an important part of your child's education. Some things you can do to help your child are:

- Read to your child or have your child read to you in English Each Day. 
- Use pictures and aks your child to tell you in English what they see happening. 
- Talk to your child's teachers about which areas of learning English (listening, speaking, reading, writing)  he or she may need extra help.
- Discuss the test with your child. Make sure he or she feels comfortable and understands the importance of taking the test.
