Reclassification of EL Students to Fluent English Proficient
The Reclassification Process
o The EL instructional aide will send teachers a district redesignation form asking for current grades and recommendation.
o Reclassification forms should be filed in the bilingual folder.
2015 - 2016 Jefferson School District Reclassification Criteria:
Students who have been reclassified to R-FEP status have their academic performance reviewed by the site in the third trimester of the year of classification, as well as, after one year of reclassification. The follow-up process is conducted by the bilingual instructional aide and involves the review of achievement through scores and grades at a level equal to the average English-only student population.
Reclassified students not maintaining academic progress retain their R-FEP status, but must be provided additional remedial instruction available to students in the regular program in order to alleviate the specific areas of underachievement. They shall be provided opportunities for interventions such as bilingual resource assistance, extended day, and/or summer school.
