What is the ELPAC?
The ELPAC is a test that:
Measures how well students understand English when it is not their primary language
Provides information that helps your child’s teacher support him or her in the right areas
Provides information to parents about their child's progress in learning in English
Why Do Students Take the ELPAC?
If a language other than English is identified, California requires students to take the ELPAC.
Identifying students who need help learning in English is important so English learners can get the support they need to do well in school.
