Ellevation in California

From English language (EL) program management to instructional support, Ellevation provides tools for California educators at every level.

Reclassification: Using Ellevation, Greenfield Union School District was able to identify that 11% of their English Learners were ready for reclassification, an increase of 3% from their largest exit group.

“Ellevation helped our district clean up the reclassification data which enabled us to reclassify students smoothly without any complications.”, says Norma De Santos, English Learner Coordinator at Greenfield Union School District

Greenfield realized that simply possessing mass amounts of student data wasn’t nearly enough to make sound decisions. To add meaning, organization and accessibility to that data, Greenfield implemented Ellevation, which allowed them to identify needs, modify instruction, and help students successfully exit the program.

Monitoring: Napa Valley USD says “goodbye!” to sifting through hundreds of reports and streamlines monitoring process with Ellevation.

“Ellevation allows me to easily distribute and collect teacher input forms online, giving me a direct line of communication to classroom teachers without having to rely on Principals or APs,” says Sarah Williams, Director of Assessment, Achievement and English Learner Services at Napa Valley. “Now we’re able to quickly access our student information, along with their data, and have a more meaningful conversation about what to do next.”

Student Data Analysis: Ellevation allows Claremont Unified School District administrators and program specialists to distribute, collect, and analyze electronic versions of their teacher input forms, ELD report cards and RFEP monitoring forms.

While our district has access to a couple of really great data analysis tools, they don’t house all of the letters, reports, and data views that we need for our English Learner program. Schools had to ask the district for the EL-specific data. This person had this data and that person had that data,” Julie Olesniewicz, Director of Educational Services for Claremont Unified School District, shares.

Differentiate Instruction: With Ellevation, Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD) was able to streamline administrative tasks for teachers in order to focus more time on differentiation and support teachers with EL instruction.

 “Our teachers already know what content to teach, but Ellevation Strategies now supports them with the how and equips every teacher with the tools they need to bring all levels of EL into any lesson” says Martha Cepida-Medina, Coordinator, at MVUSD. “Ellevation has allowed our department to have a huge impact on teachers and students across the district.”
