As districts continue to make EL reclassification decisions, the Department is providing this virtual training to help prepare and plan. The October 1 deadline for 2019-2020 reclassification decisions has been extended to October 31, 2020. This is a one-time extension. The EL Reclassification Tutorial will overview the reclassification policies and the completion of reclassification rubrics while schools are implementing distance learning. Participants will also walk through an example of calculating student scores using the language use inventories rubrics, utilize the online reclassification tool for completing rubrics and generating data files, and uploading the master data file to generate individual student cover sheets.
Intended audience: K-12 content teachers; K-12 ESL Specialists; school and district administrators
