•Because of the shift to universal format, there are no longer opt-in windows for all grades every year.
•See 2023-2024 assessment calendar at the top of the page.  

WHY THIS CHANGE HAS HAPPENED:
•Provide an ELP screening opportunity to all SLCSD students twice.
•Establish consistency and predictability in the assessment calendar.
•Balance ELP Department's time and effort between identification and services management within ELP.
