English Language Proficiency

The English Language Proficiency (ELP) community of practice (CoP) will create a shared online space for state education agencies (SEAs) to learn from one another and from research and policy experts. As SEAs implement their consolidated state plans, they will benefit from specialized technical knowledge from peers and EL and accountability experts. SEAs that engage and collaborate in this CoP will work towards the following goals:

  • Participants will be able to create and execute a plan to adjust their ELP goals, MIPs, and the ELP indicator when new ELP assessment data becomes available.
  • Participants will be able to articulate a strategy for monitoring, reporting, and/or assisting LEAs in meeting ELP goal
  • Participants will learn how to apply best practice and research for incorporating EL subpopulations (e.g. recently-arrived ELs, ELs with disabilities, students with interrupted formal education, former ELs).
