Reclassification as Fluent English Proficient (RFEP)


Students are assessed for meeting the following Four (4) reclassification criteria throughout the year as applicable data become available.

  1. Parent Notification: If all of the above criteria for reclassification are met, parents will be notified and given the opportunity to request a conference with the ELD Coodinator to discuss any concerns about reclassification.


RFEP Monitoring

  •      Students exiting from EL status must be monitored for at least two years, to ensure that (1) they have not been prematurely exited; (2) any academic deficits incurred as a result of participating in the EL program have been remedied; and (3) they are meaningfully participating in the standard program of instruction comparable to their never­EL peers.
  •      In addition, the ESEA now requires LEAs to report on the number and percentage of former ELs meeting state academic standards for four years. (ESSA [Section 3121(a)(5)])
  •      During the 2-year monitoring period, former EL (or Reclassified Fluent English Proficient – RFEP) students who receive a grade of “F” in an ELA course are provided with appropriate interventions that support the student in meeting academic performance at grade level (See: Teacher Support Flowchart and Pyramid of Interventions).
