ACCESS for ELLs Testing Email to Families
I hope this email find you all in good health. As the new year approaches we are preparing for the annual ACCESS for ELLs assessment. The ACCESS for ELLs assessment is a state mandated assessment that helps us assess the students English Proficiency Levels. Attached you will find two documents that include information about the assessment at RTSD.The testing window begins on January 4th, 2021 and Ends on March 19th, 2021. Specific Schedules about when each school and grade will be administering the assessment will be coming out when we return to school in January.As with all things in this school year, we will have additional protocols in place to ensure the safety of all of our students. Additional details can be found in the WIDA parent presentation document attached above.We will hold two parent information sessions to explain the assessment and answer any questions you may have. The sessions will be held on the following dates and times:
- Tuesday December 22nd @ 6:30
- Tuesday January 5th @ 6:30
Zoom links for these sessions will be sent out the day of the session along with the presentation in multiple languages. If you can not attend either of these meeting times but would like to hear the presentation please contact your ELD teacher and a time will be set up for you.We look forward to seeing the growth that our students have made this school year. As always we are tremendously proud of all of their hard work, but especially this past year as there have been insurmountable challenges that they have all worked so hard to overcome. We think the ELD students in RTSD are the smartest students and will do wonderful this year on their ACCESS for ELLs assessment.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns,Thank you,The ELD teachers at RTSD
