The philosophy of the Harlem School District is for all of our students to develop high levels of English proficiency, while maintaining, and whenever possible, enhancing their linguistic diversity. We will support our students to maintain their first language as they develop skills in English. We will develop a comprehensive model to address the short and long term academic programming goals of our English Learners (ELs).
A student identified as EL is entitled to services (but, as noted above, not necessarily within TBE/TPI program parameters) until such student obtains a minimum Overall Composite Proficiency Level of 4.8 on ACCESS. Thus, districts must continue to provide ELs with appropriate services until they achieve these cut scores on ACCESS.
