Elementary ELD Program
If a student is identified as having a native or primary home language that is other than English on the Language Use Survey, the ELD Specialist in the building of attendance will be notified.
Within ten days of the entry date, a student who is identified as potentially eligible on the Language Use Survey must be assessed to determine if he/she is eligible for ELD services. The student is assessed in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing English, using the WIDA ACCESS For ELs or the W-APT.
A student who scores any of the six levels on the WIDA ACCESS For ELs or the W-APT is eligible for ELD support. However, additional multiple academic criteria must be considered by the district for a student who scores Reaching to continue receiving services.
There are two basic ways students receive support:
Individually or small group (pull-out)
Within their classroom (push-in)
