Exit Criteria
PA Exit Graphic CRITERIA
The Pennsylvania Department of Education has developed exit criteria that all local education agencies (LEAs) are required to incorporate into the LEA's English Language Instructional Program Plan.  The exit criteria for English Language Learners (ELLs) represent valid and reliable evidence of a student's English language proficiency to exit from an English language instructional program. Click on one of the file formats below to view Pennsylvania's required exit criteria for ELLs.
