ISBE DELL e-broadcast 2008.110 - Reporting ELL (English Language Learner) Individual Student Data on SIS
Dear Educators Serving ELLs:
This message is being forwarded to you from the Data Analysis and Progress Reporting Division at the Illinois State Board of Education.
Reporting ELL (English Language Learner) Individual Student Data on SIS
Starting this school year (2007-2008), districts must provide their annual report of individual student information for Limited English Proficient (LEP) or English Language Learner (ELL) students via the ISBE Student Information System (SIS). There is no longer a Bilingual Education Annual Student Report (ASR) that must be completed by districts. Staff responsible for overseeing LEP services for a district should coordinate with SIS technology staff for the district to ensure that required ELL data are reported on SIS before ELL students are exited from the district for the current school year. The template for reporting ELL data on SIS is available at: http://www.isbe.net/sis/default.htm
If you have technical questions related to reporting ELL data on SIS, please contact the ISBE Help Desk at 217/558-3600. Other questions about ELL data may be directed to Dr. Lilibeth Q. Gumia in the Data Analysis and Progress Reporting Division at 217/782-3950.
