Exiting ESL and Formerly LEP students

Students that score a 5.0 composite (overall) score and 5.0 Literacy score on the ACCESS for ELLs® test automatically attain an English language proficiency level of 6 and will have exited the program. These students have attained the language skills necessary to compete with mainstream English speakers, in age and grade appropriate settings, in all areas of language development without adapted or modified materials. 

These Formerly Limited English Proficiency (FLEP) students are monitored for four years to ensure that they are making academic progress and maintaining language skills. If necessary, ESL staff will collaborate with the classroom teacher to provide strategies and suggest differentiated lessons that allow the FLEP student to be successful.
