• Dear ELL students, please take some time to view the TEST DEMO - ACCESS for ELLs, SAMPLE ITEMS, and practice all four language skills ( Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking) using the TEST PRACTICE, by clicking on the blue links and then on your appropriate grade level.

    Please do that before 2/22/2021 to make sure you are familiar with the different requirements of the ACCESS test. 

    The test will be in person only. 

    You will be contacted shortly by e-mail and phone with the specific days and dates and when you are asked to come in to take the ACCESS test.

    I hope to see all of you soon.

    Thank you and good luck!
