Welcome to the English Language Learners Program

  • The ELL Program supports schools in delivering an equal educational opportunity to students who speak a language or languages other than English, who speak another language in addition to English, or who have a language other than English spoken in their home, and who are academically achieving below grade level. The program focuses on helping students gain basic interpersonal communication skills and cognitive academic language proficiency (CALP) skills in English, while developing and maintaining a healthy cross-cultural perspective.

  • ACCESS for ELLs Testing February-March

    Posted by Virva J. Elliott on 2/5/2018

    All students eligible for ELL Program services will be tested using the ACCESS for ELLs assessment during the two month testing window (February-March). ELL staff at schools will be able to answer any school specific scheduling questions.


    Students in grades 1-12 will take the computer based ACCESS for ELLs assessment. Students can access the ACCESS for ELLs Test Practice at home (open the link in Chrome browser). Students will be offered an opportunity to practice at school prior to the test, to ensure that all students are familiar with the online tools and comfortable testing online.


    Students in Kindergarten will be tested individually using the paper-based Kindergarten ACCESS for ELLs assessment.


    More information about ACCESS for ELLs and Kindergarten ACCESS for ELLs can be found on WIDA Consortium webpages. You can also visit the FNSBSD ELL Program ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 webpage for additional information and links to test demos.
