California English Learners Development Test - CELDT


Students in Kindergarten through grade twelve whose home language is not English are required by law to be assessed in English language proficiency (ELP).  In California, the ELP assessment is the CELDT (California English Learners Development Test).


The CELDT allows schools to identify students who need to improve their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. Schools also give the test each year to students who are still learning English.


For more information about the CELDT test, the following guidelines are available:

Testing Information




TUSD has been identified as a Program Improvement (PI) Local Educational Agency (LEA) District in Year 3, and has been placed on Corrective Action 6 Cohort 3. As a requirement of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA)/The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 the District revised the LEA Plan to document steps to fully implement the State Board of Education (SBE) assigned corrective action.

Corrective action is the collective name given to the steps an LEA must take that substantially and directly respond to instructional, managerial and organizational problems in the LEA.  Responses will lead to students achieving proficiency in the core academic subjects of ELA and math.
