Oxford, Mississippi (October 6, 2023) — The Oxford School District English Learners (EL) Program celebrated 56 graduates at their annual Fall EL Parent Night.
These EL students met the exit criteria to exit the English Learner program in the spring of 2023 when they took an English proficiency test. Students must meet the state's requirements of being proficient in English in reading, writing, listening, and speaking to the program. The graduates possess the English language skills to be successful in the general education classroom without any EL support. On average, it takes students about 5-7 years to accomplish this level of proficiency if they come to us as a beginning learner of English.
