  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters (Turning Point etc.)
  • Living in a public or private place not designed for habitation (car, park, abandoned building)

The placement test, administered upon the student's arrival in the United States, is used to determine the EL services appropriate for the student. The annual assessment, administered in January and February, is used to determine the student's current level of English proficiency and for accountability purposes.

Based on the Indiana Academic Standards, IREAD-3 is a summative assessment given to all third grade students, that was developed in accordance with House Enrolled Act 1367

Title I Program

Title I, Part A is the oldest and largest federal funded program which provides financial assistance to schools with high numbers or high percentages of poverty to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Title I is directly connected to ESSA regulations.   Each elementary school receiving Title I funding provides intervention for children identified as most in need of educational help in English/language arts and mathematics. The school sets goals for improvement, measures student progress, and implements programs that supplement regular classroom instruction.  Carlin Park Elementary, Hendry Park Elementary, and Pleasant Lake Elementary schools serve students through TAS programming which serves targeted children who are the least successful.
 Parents are an important part of all aspects of the program. Please click on the Parent Information links below to learn more.
