Identification, Reclassification & Monitoring of English Learners

To provide accessible instruction to English learners (ELs), the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires all states and school districts to implement uniform entrance, reclassification and monitoring procedures. The resources below can be used to understand and meet these requirements.  

Identification of English Learners 

Reclassification of English Learners 

Monitoring English Learners that met Exit Criteria 

  • Chapter eight of the U.S. Department of Education's federal toolkit explains the importance of monitoring students even if they opt out of English learner programs.  For at least two years, schools and districts monitor and regularly assess the progress of all English learners reclassified to exit based upon their Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment scores. Data collection systems inform progress towards meeting academic and English language proficiency (ELP) standards.
