The Office of English Language Acquisition Services (OELAS) will review the English Language Proficiency Standards Review (ELPS) and update them to align to the English Language Arts Standards. Community input on the current ELP Standards is appreciated and will be considered during the review process.
The Arizona Department of Education is fully committed to continuous review of our academic standards. Under the leadership of Superintendent of Public Instruction, Diane Douglas, we are entering a new era of standards creation and revision. Rather than the typical seven year wait, we intend to constantly monitor all academic standards so that implementation concerns, whether they be related to standards, curriculum, or instruction, can be handled in a more immediate fashion. The form below represents an opportunity for Arizonans to provide on-going input and feedback. Please complete the form in its entirety.
