Dear parents of ELL students (including parent denials)

English Language Learners (ELLs) in grade K-12, including parent denials are required to be assessed through the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS). The Texas Education Agency developed TELPAS to meet state and federal testing requirements for assessing the English language proficiency of ELLs in four language domains: listening, speaking, reading and writing. TELPAS assesses the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), which are part of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).

The assessment components for grades K–1 and 2–12 differ in the following ways:

  • Grades K–1: Holistically rated listening, speaking, reading, and writing assessments based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions.
  • Grades 2–12: Online reading and listening and speaking tests and holistically rated student writing collections

For these assessments, teachers are trained to use proficiency level descriptors to determine the English language proficiency levels of students.

State testing calendar for TELPAS is February 25, 2019 through April 5, 2019. Our school is going to assess students between February 26 and March 29. If a student is absent on the day of testing, a make-up test will be administered before March 29, 2019.  The following is the testing schedule at our campus.

Additional information about TELPAS can be found at the following website:  






Estimados Padres o Tutores de estudiantes ELL (incluyendo padres que han negado el programa ESL),

Los estudiantes que están aprendiendo inglés como segundo idioma (ELL) en los grados K-12, incluyendo a los estudiantes que sus padres han negado el programa deben ser evaluados a través del sistema de evaluación de competencia del idioma ingles de Texas (TELPAS). La Agencia de Educación de Texas desarrolló TELPAS para cumplir con los requisitos de evaluaciones estatales y federales para evaluar el dominio del idioma Inglés de los estudiantes, en cuatro dominios del lenguaje: escuchar, hablar, leer y escribir. TELPAS evalúa los estándares de competencia del idioma ingles de Texas (ELPS), que forman parte de los conocimientos y habilidades esenciales de Texas (TEKS).

Los componentes de la evaluación para los grados K-1 y 2–12 difieren de las siguientes maneras:

  • Grados K-1: Evaluación holística de escuchar, hablar, leer y escribir. Estas evaluaciones son basadas en observaciones continuas en el salón de clase y las interacciones del estudiante.
  • Grados 2-12: Evaluación en línea de lectura, comprensión auditiva, expresión oral y colecciones de escritura son holísticamente calificadas.

Para estas evaluaciones los maestros están entrenados para usar los descriptores de nivel de competencia para determinar los niveles de competencia en el  idioma Inglés de los estudiantes.

El calendario de exámenes estatales para TELPAS es del 25 de febrero del 2019 hasta el 05 de abril del 2019. Nuestra escuela evaluara a los estudiantes entre el 25 de febrero y 29 de marzo. Si un estudiante está ausente en el día de la prueba, se administrará una prueba de recuperación antes del 29 de marzo de 2019. Este es nuestro calendario para el TELPAS.
