English Learners: EL Programs and Supports

Orange Glen has a wide array of supports and services for students whose primary language is not English.  Important details to know:
CELDT Testing
CELDT (California English Language Development Test) will soon be replaced by the LPAC (Language Proficiency Assessment of California).  Each year, English Learners are required to be assessed in the areas of Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing.  Their CELDT score will be used to help determine placement, and if high enough, may make them eligible for Reclassification (RFEP). 
Reclassification Criteria
In order for English Learners to reclassify to RFEP (Redesignated Fluent English Proficient) status, they must meet all of the following criteria:
  1. CELDT - Overall 4 or 5 (No sub-score lower than 3; Writing must be at least a 4)
  2. GPA or Grades - Semester grade for English must be at least a C OR GPA overall must be 2.0+.
  3. SRI (Scholastic Reading Inventory) - Minimum score of 900 lexile.
