What is Reclassification?

  • Reclassification is the term used to indicate

    that an English Language Learner has attained academic English fluency.

  • More specifically. . .Reclassification indicates that an English Language Learner has achieved a level of English proficiency that, without special accommodations related to language, will enable him/her to compete academically with native English speaking peers.


Reclassification vs program change

Reclassification vs. Program Change

  • Reclassification should not be confused with students moving from SEI to Mainstream. Progressing from SEI to Mainstream means that a student has moved from the BEGINNING levels of English proficiency to the INTERMEDIATE level. Reclassification means that a student has reached total FLUENCY and no longer requires English learner services.

Teacher approval

Teacher Approval

In addition to student performance questions, teachers are asked to state whether they approve of the student’s reclassification. When a teacher does not approve, the district level reclassification committee reviews student performance data and discusses the student with the teacher. The final decision for reclassification, based on a combination of factors, is made at the district level.


Parent meeting
