English Language Proficiency

 English Language Proficiency Standards

The English Language Proficiency standards should be given to all teachers who have English learners in their classroom. The No Child Left Behind act requires that the standards address the following:

  • the development and attainment of English language proficiency by language minority students;
  • each grade level K-12;
  • the domains of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and comprehension; and
  • are linked to the academic content achievement standards in English/LA and Mathematics.

Link to  Standards on the IDOE website.  Select English Language Proficiency as the subject.

 Laws Guiding Our Practices

Several laws guide our practices for identifying and instructing English Language Learners:


·         Title III:  Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students

·         Title I, Part C:  Education of Migratory Children

·         Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

·         Title IX, Part E:  Equitable Services for Non-Public School Student, Teachers, and Other Educational Personnel


Link to IDOE English Language Learners webpage for more information on these laws. 

ELL forms are located on the website for teachers to access once they login.
