  • Writing sample.

  • Teacher observations are taken into account to determine if they are going to be placed in the ELL program.

  • Level 3 students understand most parts of the classroom lesson allowing them to participate academically. At this level students can read, retell and write in English making attempts to elaborate. At this level, students require very little or no class work modifications. Level 3 ELL students, up to a year below the reading standard of the grade level, will form part of the homeroom heterogeneous reading groups and will only attend ELL classes for writing.

  • Level 4 are students that speak and understand without difficulty. Their reading and writing skills are approaching or are at grade level standard. They read and write text which contains more complex vocabulary, sentence structure and grammatical conventions. Their writing might still reflect inconsistent mastery of grammatical conventions.
