Mrs. DeCola and Mrs. Shaheen will be administering the the Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA) to evaluate our English Learners' (ELs) proficiency in Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. ELs in the district will be tested from January 30th until March 24th.
Students have been practicing and preparing for this test and can also do so at home at this website: Take a Practice Test
The school will receive OELPA results on May 15th. Students who receive 4s or 5s in each domain, will exit the EL program. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Shaheen or Mrs. DeCola if you have any questions. Wishing all of our students the best of luck!
