Monitoring English Learners and Reclassified Students for Success
Effective monitoring of English Learner (EL) progress is a requirement of the state and federal government and serves to make informed decisions regarding EL student support and program changes. The EL Programs office works with designated administrators at each school site to monitor the progress of English Learners by disaggregating data through Synergy and Illuminate. Once students are identified, teachers are included in the process by implementing strategies in the classroom and continuing the monitoring process.
ELLevation combines software, student data and research to provide a fluid system for the monitoring of English Learners.
ELLevation aggregates all EL student data in one place, streamlines time-sensitive compliance processes, records key programming and instructional decisions about ELs, and disseminates that information through digital and printable reports. This system provides online access to administrators and classroom teachers with key EL information including language proficiency progress, programming and instructional recommendations.
