A school district, an open-enrollment charter school, or a private school administering the tests required by the TEC, Chapter 39, Subchapter B, shall follow procedures specified in the applicable test administration materials. The TEA shall administer to students assessments in any other subject and grade required by federal law. Decisions regarding testing accommodations shall take into consideration the needs of the student and the accommodations the student routinely receives in classroom instruction. Upon receipt of the assessment results from the agency's test contractor, a school district or charter school shall disclose a student's assessment results to a student's teacher in the same subject area as the assessment for that school year.
The district must provide students the opportunity each year to select courses in which they intend to participate from a list that includes all courses required to be offered in subsection b 2 of this section. If the school district will not offer the required courses every year, but intends to offer particular courses only every other year, it must notify all enrolled students of that fact.
A school district must teach a course that is specifically required for high school graduation at least once in any two consecutive school years. For a subject that has an end-of-course assessment, the district must either teach the course every year or employ options described in Subchapter C of this chapter relating to Other Provisions to enable students to earn credit for the course and must maintain evidence that it is employing those options.
Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to require a district to offer a specific course in the foundation and enrichment curriculum except as required by this subsection.
English Language Proficiency Standards. School districts shall implement this section as an integral part of each subject in the required curriculum. Social language proficiency in English consists of the English needed for daily social interactions. Academic language proficiency consists of the English needed to think critically, understand and learn new concepts, process complex academic material, and interact and communicate in English academic settings.
ELLs may exhibit different proficiency levels within the language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The proficiency level descriptors outlined in subsection d of this section show the progression of second language acquisition from one proficiency level to the next and serve as a road map to help content area teachers instruct ELLs commensurate with students' linguistic needs.
In fulfilling the requirements of this section, school districts shall: These ELLs require focused, targeted, and systematic second language acquisition instruction to provide them with the foundation of English language vocabulary, grammar, syntax, and English mechanics necessary to support content-based instruction and accelerated learning of English.
The ELL uses language learning strategies to develop an awareness of his or her own learning processes in all content areas. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across the foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency.
The student is expected to: The ELL listens to a variety of speakers including teachers, peers, and electronic media to gain an increasing level of comprehension of newly acquired language in all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in listening.
ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in speaking. The ELL reads a variety of texts for a variety of purposes with an increasing level of comprehension in all content areas.
ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in reading. For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations apply to text read aloud for students not yet at the stage of decoding written text.
The ELL writes in a variety of forms with increasing accuracy to effectively address a specific purpose and audience in all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in writing.
In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency.
For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations do not apply until the student has reached the stage of generating original written text using a standard writing system.
The following proficiency level descriptors for listening are sufficient to describe the overall English language proficiency levels of ELLs in this language domain in order to linguistically accommodate their instruction. Beginning ELLs have little or no ability to understand spoken English in academic and social settings.
Intermediate ELLs have the ability to understand simple, high-frequency spoken English used in routine academic and social settings. Advanced ELLs have the ability to understand, with second language acquisition support, grade-appropriate spoken English used in academic and social settings.Contents, cont.
