ELL Monitoring

Print this page

The state of Illinois requires school districts to monitor the academic performance of students who have exited the ELL program for the four school years after exiting the program. All students who have been exited from the program are monitored for satisfactory academic progress for at least two years, and if necessary, are offered additional language assistance.

 Once the student exits the ELL program, it is important to provide a system that provides for monitoring the success of the student in the mainstream program. The monitoring system includes frequent checks by the ESL teacher with the classroom teacher to determine the progress and achievement of the exited students.

A list of students who have recently exited is maintained annually. ESL teachers will meet with classroom teachers at the beginning of the year and will continue to check-in with them to be sure no problems are developing.
