English Language Learners (ELLs) in grade K-12, including parent denials, are required to be assessed through the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS). The Texas Education Agency developed TELPAS to meet state and federal testing requirements for assessing the English language proficiency of ELLs in four language domains: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. TELPAS assesses the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), which are part of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
The state testing calendar for TELPAS is February 22, 2021, through April 4, 2021. Our school is going to assess students in the FIRST WEEK OF MARCH 2021.
