Dear CELDT District Coordinators:

REQUEST FORM CELDT SCORE

State law (Education Code Section 60810) and federal law (No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 Title 3, Subpart 2, Section 3121[d][1]) require the evaluation of the progress of children in attaining English proficiency “ . . . including a child’s level of comprehension, speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in English.” When a student transfers from one district to another, and the new district requests the student’s previous CELDT scores, the former district must provide them. This includes the student’s overall proficiency level and the results for each domain (listening, speaking, reading, and writing).

Each pupil’s CELDT records shall be transferred by the sending district within 20 calendar days (California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Section 11512). If a school or district chooses to use the Request Form CELDT Score as its method for obtaining CELDT records, the school or district must complete the first two sections and send it to the school site or district CELDT Coordinator of the student’s school of origin. The school or district of origin then must complete the third section of the form and return the form to the school in a timely manner ensuring confidentiality.

If you need assistance or have questions, please contact the English Language Proficiency Assessments Office by phone at 916-319-0784 or by e-mail at celdt@cde.ca.gov.

Sincerely,

\s\
