All school districts in Missouri are required to provide equal educational opportunities to students regardless of race, national origin, sex, color, or disabilities. To have access to school programs, English learners (ELs) (including immigrant children and youth, refugees, migrants, and undocumented students) must receive instruction that increases their English proficiency and core academic content knowledge. Suitable instruction involves the application of rigorous, systematic, and objective procedures to obtain reliable and valid knowledge relevant to educational activities and programs. This is important to the success of the student.

The WIDA Can Do Descriptors are commonly used by ESL teachers in coaching general education teachers about differentiated instruction for English language learners (ELLs). They can also be used to plan lessons or observe students' progress.

Parents: At the beginning of the school year I send a letter with your student(s) ACCESS scores on them. They are tested in four areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. I have attached the Can-Do Descriptors for your information. Please take a look, this may also give you some ideas of what you can expect and help your student(s) with at home.
