ELPAC - English Language Proficiency Assessments for California

State and federal law require that districts administer a state test of English language proficiency (ELP) to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve or ages 3-22. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. It is comprised of two separate ELP assessments: one for the initial identification of students as English learners (ELs), and a second for the annual summative assessment to measure a student's progress in learning English and to identify the student's level of ELP.

Initial & Alternate Initial ELPAC - 2023-24 Initial July 3, 2024 - June 30, 2025 Site ELPAC Coordinator Essentials will be located in Safe Schools.

Summative & Alternate Summative ELPAC - FEBRUARY 1, 2025 - MAY 31, 2025 Site ELPAC Coordinator Essentials will be located in Safe Schools.
