Exit Criteria

  • EL students must meet the State of Illinois English proficiency criteria in order to be transitioned from the TBE or TPI program. Students exit from EL program support upon meeting a 4.8 overall composite on ACCESS.

    Parents are sent a letter from the EL Department at EAC informing them that their child met the designated 4.8 State of Illinois English proficiency criteria. Parents are given an option to deny their child’s exit from EL program services if the child meets the exit criteria prior to the entitlement of three years in the EL program.
