Students in ninth through grade twelve whose home language is not English are required by law to be assessed in English language proficiency. In California, the assessment is the CELDT.
The CELDT allows schools to identify students who need to improve their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. Schools also give the test each year to students who are still learning English. For more detailed information on the CELDT please visit our District website or the California Department of Education's website.
