English Language Development (ELD)

  • Roosevelt students who have been identified as English Learners benefit from participation in the general classroom instructional program as well as specific ELD instruction provided by trained classroom teachers and ELD instructional assistants, as overseen by Roosevelt's ELD Specialist, Deidra Tineo.

    One of the annual assessments used to evaluate language growth is the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). Each spring, students identified as English Learners are assessed in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, providing teachers and parents with valuable information about their language growth. This assessment is given until students meet all four criteria for reclassification.

    More information is provided on the district's English Learners page.
