    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    The purpose of this letter is to inform you that  EL students will be taking the ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 test starting on Monday, January 11, 2021. ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 measures your student’s progress in listening, speaking, reading, and writing English language skills. In the fall, your student will receive an Individual Student Report that provides information about how well he or she is progressing in the English language.

    Please review the following policies with your child before testing:

    ■ Electronic Devices—If your student is found with ANY electronic devices at any time during testing OR during breaks, his or her test section will be invalidated, which means it will not be scored. The best practice is for students to leave electronic devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing. Any electronic devices brought to school will be collected prior to testing and returned when testing has concluded. 

    ■ Attendance—It is very important that your student attends school during each day of testing, because each student has been assigned to a specific test session each day.

    If you have any questions related to this test administration, please contact your student’s ESL teacher.

    Thank you for supporting your student as he or she prepares for the test.

    Sincerely,

    ESL Teachers at Upper Moreland School District
