notification/parent permission form
before a student is exited from the
ESL program.

The LPAC reviews each student’s
progress at the end of the school
year in order to determine future
appropriate placement. The
following criteria will be used to
determine whether a student is
academically successful:
   * English Language Proficiency:
Grades 4 – 6: Score Advanced
High on TELPAS in Listening,
Speaking, Reading, and Writing.
   * Grades 4 – 6: Meet passing
standard on the STAAR Reading
test.
  * the results of a subjective
teacher evaluation using the
state’s standardized rubric.

The LPAC will monitor students
who exit the ESL program for two
years. The scores from state
approved achievement test(s) - if
administered, criterion-referenced
tests in reading and/or writing,
local assessments, English
proficiency tests, teacher
observations, parental viewpoints
and records noting academic
progress will be used. If the
student demonstrates inadequate
English proficiency at any time
during the two year monitoring
period, the student will be
readmitted to the ESL program as
prescribed by the LPAC.
