To ensure that students who are English language learners have access to an effective and meaningful education, the following actions need to be included:

  • A systematic process for examining the specific background variables or ecologies of ELLs (i.e., first and second language proficiency, educational history including bilingual models, immigration pattern, socioeconomic status, and culture) that impact academic achievement in a U.S. classroom;
  • Examination of the appropriateness of classroom instruction and the classroom context based on knowledge of individual student factors;
  • Information gathered through informal and formal assessments (W-APT, ACCESS for ELLs); and
  • Nondiscriminatory interpretation of all assessment data.
