English Language Learner (ELL) Program

The César Chávez Academy District maintains a comprehensive and highly effective educational program for English Language Learners.

Goals of the Program:

  • To move 10% of the students annually to Formally Limited English Proficient (FLEP). 

  • To educate Limited English proficient students to the same rigorous standards as all students in the school district.

  • To teach the English language, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.

  • To provide students with an opportunity to progress academically with their peer group by using tutor assistance in their first language. 

  • To foster positive attitudes toward school and positive self-concepts.

  • To assist students in understanding and functioning within American society.

  • To promote pride in the students' cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

  • To involve families and community leaders in the educational process in order to make education a cooperative effort between home and school

English Language Proficiency Assessment (WIDA)

Our district has designed a plan for the delivery of services that support English Language Learners (ELLs) in their acquisition of the English language. Every school year we use the WIDA to measure the success of these services.  This assessment indicates the students’ level of proficiency in English in the areas of listening, reading, writing and speaking.

The Spring WIDA window is from February-April.

Testing Tips Before the Test:

Ensure that your son/daughter get a good night sleep

Ensure that your son/daughter have a good healthy breakfast

Ensure that your son/daughter come to school on time
