When a child is enrolled in school, one of the required forms is called the Primary Home Language Other Than English (PHLOTE). When one or more of the 3 questions on the PHLOTE form are answered with a language other than English or American Sign Language, the student’s AZELLA test history is looked up in an Arizona Department of Education database. If the student has a current AZELLA test from the Spring AZELLA Reassessment, then they are placed into the appropriate program for their level of proficiency. If the student does not have a current AZELLA score, then the student will be administered the AZELLA Placement Test.
When the AZELLA test shows that the student is not proficient in English, the student is supported with two hours a day of intensive specific instruction to bring the students’ reading, writing, listening, and speaking to a proficient level.
Please call our office or visit the Arizona Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition Services (OELAS) website for further information.
