Cypress-Fairbanks ISD will be administering the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) Reading Test and Listening & Speaking Test to limited English proficient (LEP) students in grades 2-12 in February and March 2019. The TELPAS Reading Test and TELPAS Listening & Speaking Test will be administered February 25 - March 5, 2019.
The TELPAS Reading Test and Listening & Speaking Test are designed specifically for LEP students. The Reading Test measures your student’s ability to read the English language, based on the language development stages of second language learners. The TELPAS Listening & Speaking Test measures your student’s ability to speak English, and understand English when it is spoken, based on the language development stages of second language learners. The results of both of these tests will help us to better understand the educational needs of your student. These tests also allow your student to demonstrate the progress they have made in learning the English language during the past year.
For the days that your student will test, please make sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast.
Also, since there will be many changes made to the student lunch schedule, there will be no parent visitors allowed during the TELPAS testing window.
