ELPAC RESOURCE

English Language (EL) Parents

The following is a video that demonstrates how you can practice the English Language Assessments for California (ELPAC) with your child. The Summative ELPAC test is administered annually in the spring to all English Language Development students. Practicing the test will help your child become familiar with the format and help ensure your child's best performance. The ELPAC test will most likely be administered remotely beginning in March (online) by your child's teacher. If you have any questions please contact America Castagnola, TSP Coordinator at axb5385@lausd.net.

Here is the youtube video: https://youtu.be/_O1TdYSSAko
