    ELA Program Review


    • Program Review data for in-program ELs accurately reflects the ELA Program’s impact in schools
    • Disaggregated EL data points are inclusive of assessments taken by high school students (PSAT, SAT)


    • ELA Program Review Scoring
    • Domain 2, which includes all instructional indicators, carries double the point value 
    • LEAD (for Principals only):  
      • The ELA Program Implementation Rating is part of the body of evidence for the rating in the Community & Equity competency.  A leader who receives “approaching” ELA Program Implementation Rating may receive an “effective rating in Community & Equity if the preponderance of the additional evidence aligns to “effective.”
      • To receive a rating of “effective” in the ELA Program Implementation Rating, a leader must have EITHER received a satisfactory ELA Program Review OR received an unsatisfactory ELA Program Review AND then implemented an ELA Service Plan that remedies areas of concern.


    • ELA Program Review is stored in Google Sheets, so that the data can be auto-populated and schools can have live access to documents

    Evidence Collection:

    • ELA Partners will work with schools to collect the evidence throughout the year of high-quality ELA Programming in the areas of language instruction, bilingual programming, and progress monitoring

    Differentiated Rubrics:

    • Specialized rubrics for schools/programs that serve specific populations, such as Pathways schools and Early Education Centers

    Progress Monitoring:  

    • ELA Partners will provide consistent progress monitoring for all schools to ensure they are on-track to meeting Program Review expectations
