ELPAC Overview and Resources

ELPAC

The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) will be the successor to the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of English Language Proficiency to eligible students in kindergarten (or year one of a two-year kindergarten program, sometimes referred to as "transitional kindergarten") through grade twelve.

TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

All ELPAC Test Examiners are required to be trained to administer the ELPAC 2017-18 Summative Assessment.  The ELPAC Summative Assessment testing window is February 1, 2018 through May 31, 2018. To prepare for this test administration, Twin Rivers Unified School District will hold the following trainings for ELPAC Test Examiners. 


Event Details

  • We are using a Trainer of Trainers model. Each site will send one person to the training (e.g., EL site contacts or designee).
  • EL Site Contacts will be responsible to schedule and train teachers and support staff.
  • Participant (one per site) will need to register for the training via My Learning Plan.

  • Classroom teachers should request a substitute through Aesop for the training day, however, all other positions do not need to request a substitute.
  • Each participant needs to fill out a (travel conference), get it signed by the site administrator, and return it to Alex Piña by January 17, 2018.
