Transitional Program of Instruction, Transitional Bilingual Education
Our Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI) uses the E-ELD and WIDA standards to help design learning activity/lesson(s) specific to the expectations and needs of each student. All students are then tested annually using the state mandated ACCESS for ELLs assessment. ACCESS for ELLs is a English language proficiency test designed to measure English language learners' social and academic proficiency proficiency in English. It assesses social and instructional English as well as the language associated with language arts, mathematics, science and social studies within the school context across the four language domains.
