District honors students who achieved English language proficiency


15 Clinton students achieved English language proficiency


At its September meeting, the Clinton School Board honored students who have achieved proficiency in the English language.


"The goal for students who are English Language Students is that they attain fluency in English, master the state’s academic content standards as demonstrated by proficiency on the state’s required student assessments, and pass any other state required tests," said Teresa Duke, director of testing and federal programs.


Clinton Public Schools has provided these students with access to challenging, grade-level content instruction and the opportunity to interact along side their English-speaking peers. In doing so, the following students scored proficient on the state English Language proficiency test – LAS Links.


The LAS Links Assessment measures both English language arts (ELA) standards and development standards of each student’s English language proficiency level and growth.
