English Learner Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)
The ELPAC is the test that is used to measure how well students in kindergarten through twelfth grade understand English when it is not their primary language. The ELPAC has taken the place of the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). Information from the ELPAC helps your child’s teacher provide support in the right areas.

English Learner Support Services
Students learning English receive support for English Language Development (ELD) from their classroom teachers and from ELD support teachers and assistants. The Solana Beach School District receives state and federal funds specifically for use in support of students who are English Learners.
Local Educational Agency (LEA) Plan
All California school districts in California that receive funds under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 must have an approved LEA plan. These are federal Title I, Title II and Title III funds. The funds support programs for economically disadvantaged students and English learner students, and also support professional development programs.
