Accommodation for Former LEP/ELLs Approved by NYSED Board of Regents Please be advised that on September 15, 2008 the NYSED Board of Regents approved extending test accommodations to former LEP/ELLs for two additional years after achieving proficiency on the NYSESLAT.
This limited two-year extension in testing accommodations will provide former ELLs an opportunity to demonstrate their content knowledge by leveling the playing field while they continue to develop their linguistic and academic skills. These testing accommodations will not affect the validity or reliability of the required State assessments nor will they change the academic level or the expected performance criteria of such assessments.

LEP/ELLs and former LEP/ELLs are entitled to these LEP/ELL Testing Accommodations as per CR Part 154 Regulations (171 KB).
