In an attempt to better serve students and more accurately measure learning gains, we are piloting a managed enrollment plan for our ESL classes. We offer four nine-week sessions. Read on for more details.
- Session 1: September 8, 2009 – November 12, 2009
- Session 2: November 16, 2009 – February 4, 2010
- Session 3: February 8, 2010 – April 22, 2010
- Session 4: April 26, 2010 – June 24, 2010
Our managed enrollment objectives are to provide sustained, high quality instruction, reduce attendance turbulence, and increase our paired test scores and learner gains.
Registration & Testing:
Students register and take the CASAS pretest prior to the start of a session. They take the CASAS post-test at the completion of the session. Students are required to have paired scores (a pre-test and a post test score) in order to continue to the next session.
Session 1 Registration to be extended:
Session 1 registration took place August 17-27. Classified and administrative staff coordinated registration and testing. Due to the changes in registration procedure and dates, we experienced lower enrollment numbers than usual. We therefore extended registration through the first week of instruction. Most of our ESL classes are now full (40 students +), but we will continue to enroll students in classes that are not yet at capacity.
If a student misses 4 consecutive classes without informing his/her teacher of the reason for the absence, he or she will be dropped from class. The student must wait until the next session to re-enroll.
