Introduction to ELL

The WA Proficiency Level Descriptors and English Language Proficiency Standards are designed to be used by classroom teachers and ELL specialists alike. The Washington ELP Standards provide correspondences to Mathematics, Science, and ELA Practices as well as explicit correspondences to the Common Core ELA and Literacy Standards.

Bilingual Education Program

The Washington State Bilingual Education Program provides services to students who are learning English. A student may qualify for the program based on test results from the Washington English Language Proficiency Assessment if a language other than English is spoken at home.
