A new year is like a new chapter. We have a fresh start to the year and the opportunity to create resolutions (or goals) to work towards. As we begin this new year, we will work on creating goals that will help make progress with language and learning.
We are also preparing for the upcoming Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA). All English Language Learners (ELLs) will take the OELPA during the testing window: January 31 thru March 25th. The OELPA evaluates proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students who earn any combination of 4s and 5s exit the English Language Program.
I hope this new year brings all the best for our ELLs and your families!

The English Learner (EL) program at Barberton City Schools helps provide the resources and support ELs need to succeed. Our goal is for ELs to meet learning standards and achieve academic and social success.
