Exit Process for Students Indentified as ELL

Exit Process for students identified as ELL

The OELPA (Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment) will be given for the first time in the winter of 2016.  Formerly the OTELA (Ohio Test of English Language Acquisition) was given to all identified students to determine their English Language Proficiency Level.

In order to exit an ELL program in the State of Ohio, identified students must demonstrate the ability to comprehend, speak, read and write the English language at a level in which they are able to:

  1. Achieve successfully in classrooms where the language of instruction is English
  2. Meaningfully participate in academic assessments in English
  3. Participate fully in society in the United States

A student has attained the required level of English proficiency to exit a district’s LEP program when the student:

  1. Obtains a composite score of 5 on the OELPA; or
  2. Obtains a composite score of 4 on the OELPA and completes a trial period of mainstream instruction and obtains a composite score of 4 or above on the OELPA during the trial period of mainstream instruction. 
Student success is consistently monitored by the ELL tutor at Mayfield City Schools.
