Reclassification, Monitoring, and Redesignation of ELs
Once ELs attain English proficiency as defined in the state reclassification procedure, they must be reclassified as former ELs. The academic progress of former ELs must be actively monitored by district personnel for a period of two (2) years after reclassification. Former ELs must be reported to the state as such for a period of four years after reclassification.

Overall composite proficiency level calculation tool (for ELs with disabilities)
Some ELs with disabilities may not be able to participate in all four domains of the ACCESS or Alternate ACCESS. For ELs whose disabilities prevent them completing all four domains of the test and who are being considered for reclassification under the criteria for students with disabilities, the state has adopted a method for calculating an overall composite proficiency level with fewer than all four domains.
