Voice your opposition to including, as a component of the English Learner LCFF academic indicator, data on Redesignated Fluent English Proficient students (RFEPs)!! This proposal requires the inclusion of 4 years of RFEP students scores with the scores of the current EL students. The data will be aggregated to determine the EL academic performance level (color coding from red, orange, yellow, green and blue indicate the level – red being the lowest and blue the highest). The accuracy and transparency of how these two groups of students are performing in Language Arts and Math will be invisible if they are combined as proposed.
