WIDA is an organization that develops federally mandated testing for ELL students. The testing takes place in January and 121 students took the assessments. Once a student achieves a score of 4.5, they are discharged from ELL programing. Twelve students achieved that score this year. Ms. Madore went over WIDA assessment results of the last four years. As the number of ELL students decrease, staffing needs will be evaluated. She said she is very proud of our ELL Program.
The meeting adjourned at 6:05 p.m.
