What do EL, ELD, and RFEP stand for?

EL (English Learner)


ELD (English Language Development) This is the instruction students receive to help them become fluent in reading, writing, listening and speaking in English.


RFEP (Redesignated Fluent English Proficient) When a student meets the criteria for English proficiency they are eligible for redesignation.

 

What services are offered at Golden Oak Elementary for English Learners?

Currently, Golden Oak provides focused English Language Development (ELD) daily for students at their specific language level. English Language Development is also integrated into all subject areas (reading, math, science, social studies/history). Other services include after school academies and tutoring through Professional Tutors of America.

 
What is the ELPAC?

The ELPAC stands for English Language Proficiency Assessments for California.  All English Learners are required to take this test during the Spring. There are four areas that students are assessed in - Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening. The scores determine the language level of the student. The ELPAC results are as follows:


4      =     Well developed English skills


3      =     Moderately developed English skills  


2      =     Somewhat developed English skills

   

1     =     Beginning stage of developing English skills      


What can I do at home?
  • Send your child to school every day. Attendance makes a difference!
  • Communicate with your child’s teacher about his/her progress.
  • Encourage your child to tell you what he/she did in school that day.
  • Encourage your child to read every day.

 

Who can I contact if I have additional questions?

Call the Golden Oak Office. We are happy to help in any way that we can!
