California - SB463
February 16, 2017
This bill would establish criteria for the reclassification of English language learners. It would include an assessment of English language proficiency; a teacher evaluation of a student’s curriculum mastery; a parental opinion and consultation; and a comparison of the student’s performance in basic skills against an established range of performance. It would also establish a teacher/administrator team to meet regularly and assess the proficiency and performance of ELs; develop procedures to monitor student performance for four years after being reclassified as English proficient; and review the procedures in place for ELs in special education.
