English Language Learners, or ELL students, in the Corvallis School District, are exceeding state goals when it comes to learning English according to a state report released yesterday by the Oregon Department of Education.
ELL students in the Corvallis district surpassed all but the AYP goal: 63.8 percent of ELL students gained at least one proficiency level during the 2010-2011 school year; 20.8 percent of all ELL students became proficient and exited the program; and 37.9 percent of those receiving ELL services for at least five years exited the program in 2010-2011.
The one area where the district did not meet the state’s goal was meeting AYP targets for reading and math, standards which are the same for ELL students as they are for students whose first language is English. Only a third of the school districts in Oregon with ELL subgroups large enough to be rated according to this target met the AYP benchmarks.
