The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

The ELPAC is given to all students who are English Learners at CJSHS. The testing window for CJSHS English learner students will be February 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019. A letter will be sent home as well as an all-call so that families are informed of the date(s) their student will be testing.

The initial ELPAC is given to students who are new to the U.S. and English is not their native language. The initial ELPAC is given to students within 30 days of their enrollment in school.

The following are some facts about the ELPAC (adapted from elpac.org):
