Participation of English learners (ELs) in State Assessments requires language proficiency assessment committees (LPACs) to make assessment decisions on an individual student basis. This is in accordance with administrative procedures established by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and in the Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 101, Subchapter AA, Commissioner’s Rules.
The resources on this page provide LPACs with the information they need to comply with state requirements as they monitor the progress and needs of ELs and make state assessment decisions for the following:
- State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR)
- Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS)
- TELPAS Alternate
As policies and documents are finalized, they will be posted as separate links. Documents updated or revised within a school year will indicate the date of revision.
