TELPAS (Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System)

The Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) fulfills federal requirements for assessing the English Language proficiency of English language learners (ELLs) in kindergarten through grade 12 in four language domains: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. TELPAS assesses students in alignment with the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), which are part of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Student performance is reported in terms of four English language proficiency levels: beginning, intermediate, advanced, and advanced high. TELPAS results are used to meet state and federal reporting and accountability requirements.

Quick Tip Information

Quick Tip is a support system that allows students to communicate with school administrators. While the district already has many programs to help students deal with challenges such as bullying behaviors, stress, peer pressure, and family problems, Quick Tip helps break the code of silence often experienced by students because it allows them to report concerns to administrators anonymously.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a crisis line. In cases of emergency, the site will direct students to call 911!
