Task 4: Gather Academic Data for ELL and Former ELL Students
Guideline: A school should maintain data regarding the implementation of the English language learner program along with the academic progress of the students participating in the program. This data should include whether former ELL students are:
- keeping up with their non-ELL peers in the regular educational environment
- able to participate successfully in essentially all aspects of the school's curriculum without the use of simplified English materials
- being retained in grade or are dropping out at rates similar to those of their non-ELL peers
Data should be maintained on individual ELL students that will support the effectiveness of the program.
