       staff.

2.    A  Home Language Usage Survey (L.U.S.) is obtained and sent to the Intensive English

4.    An Action Team meeting is held and test results are explained to the parents and
       placement options are recommended.

 

EXIT PROCEDURES:

1. A student scores an overall level 3 Proficient Level on the OELPA.

  •  An overall level 3 of Proficient Level is obtained by getting any combination of 4’s or 5’s on the OELPA as a result of the Proficiency Levels obtained on the individual testing domains. 
  • The following year, the student is mainstreamed into regular classes. 
  • The Intensive English staff will monitor the student to ensure success in the classroom. 
Note: K-2 are eligible to exit the EL Program if they receive a performance level of Proficient. Trial Mainstream is only used for programmatic and funding purposes. Trial Mainstream students cannot exit the EL Program. Trial Mainstream students are those who score at level 3 on one test and score any combination of 4’s and 5’s on the remaining tests. These students will still continue to receive services and supports.
