When English learners have a disability, students are eligible for both English learner services as well as special education services. Some of these students will take an alternate assessment called the WIDA Alternate ACCESS for ELLs. Students can be eligible for exit when they score a P2.
FORMERLY ENGLISH LEARNERS
At WPS, our goal is to exit a minimum of 10% EL students annually. When exited, the student is monitored for the following four years thereafter or until graduated.
COMPLAINT PROCEDURES FOR NON-DISCRIMINATION
If a parent or student has a complaint about any aspect of EL services, the parent should speak with their child’s classroom teacher, an EL teacher in the building, or directly with the building principal. Any person who believes that s/he has been discriminated against or denied equal opportunity or access to programs or services may file a complaint, which may be referred to as a grievance, with the District’s Civil Rights Coordinator.
