3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade students in the EL Program at John G. recently completed the ACCESS test. The ACCESS test assesses how well students for whom English is not their first language are learning the English language. Students are tested in Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing. The students take this test each year in January and must receive a 4.5 composite (total) score to be Proficient and exit the EL program. John G had 13 students exit the EL program this year and many more grew! We are so proud of our students and how hard they work to learn a new language! EL teacher, Mrs. Otten rewarded the students for their hard work with a pizza party! Kindergarten, First and Second Grade EL students will take the ACCESS test after KPREP is completed.
