Academic Criterion For Redesignation

On December 3, 2013, the California Department of Education (CDE) provided guidance in light of the passage of Assembly Bill (AB) 484 (Bonilla) to address concerns regarding the academic criterion for reclassification in the 2013–14 school year and beyond. AB 484 suspended California Standards Test (CST) and California Modified Assessment (CMA) assessments.


With input from the DELAC RFEP subcommittee, the 2016–17 reclassification criteria will be as follows:


  • Assessment of English language proficiency, using an objective assessment instrument, including but not limited to, the state test of English language development (CELDT)

  • Participation of a Language Acquisition Team (classroom teacher, ELA teacher for secondary, administrator, and other staff on campus with direct responsibility for teaching or placement decisions of the student) who will review the student's ELA curriculum proficiency

  • Parent opinion and consultation


The fourth criterion requires a comparison of student performance on an objective assessment of basic skills in English Language Arts. The assessment results must have an empirically established range of performance in basic skills based on the performance of English proficient students of the same age.


LEAs may identify local assessments they will use to determine that English learners are meeting academic measures that indicate they are ready to reclassify. Regulations (Title 5, California Code of Regulations, sections 11303-Reclassification and 11308 [c][6]-Advisory Committee) also specify that any local reclassification criteria must be reviewed by the school district committee on programs and services for English learners. These local measures are compared to the native English speaking population at their sites to establish the range of performance necessary to demonstrate a student’s readiness to reclassify. With input from the DELAC RFEP subcommittee, the Board has approved the fourth criteria as follows:


  • The ELA district summative assessment for secondary students in which a student considered for reclassification must score 75% or higher

  • For elementary students being considered for reclassification, the Team will look at the average of the ELA CIAs for their grade level in the semester. Students must score 75% or higher.
