ESOL instructors work closely with classroom teachers to monitor the progress ESOL students are making in the regular classroom. At the end of each semester classroom teachers assess their ESOL students by completing an ESOL Exit Standard checklist.
In order for elementary students to be considered proficient they must meet 85% of the exit standards and be achieving at the Independent Reader, Proficient Writer, and Proficient Speaker and Listener ability levels in the classroom without support. If an Elementary student reaches their goals by mid-year it’s possible they will be exited from the program.
In the Middle School, students need to accomplish 90% of the exit standards without support in order to be exited from the program. The Middle School ESOL program is a one year program, meaning students are not exited mid-year.
