State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of English language proficiency (ELP) to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The California Department of Education (CDE) transitioned from the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) to the ELPAC as the state ELP assessment in 2017-18. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. There are two separate ELP assessments: one for the initial identification of students as English learners (ELs), and a second for the annual summative assessment to measure a student’s progress in learning English and to identify the student's level of ELP. Parents and students are welcome to review the ELPAC Practice Tests.
PFT assesses the physical fitness of students in grades 5, 7 and 9 in the following areas: aerobic capacity, body composition, upper body strength, abdominal strength, trunk strength, and flexibility. Students are scored as “within the Healthy Fitness Zone,” or “Needs Improvement - Some Risk,” or "Needs Improvement - - Some Risk,” or "Needs Improvement - Health Risk." To pass the PFT, students must have 5 of 6 fitness standards “within” the Healthy Fitness Zone.
