NYSESLAT (NY State English as a Second Language Achievement Test)
The New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) is administered annually to English Language Learners in kindergarten through grade 12. The test measures students' annual growth in English language development. There are four components to the NYSESLAT: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

- Please send your child to school every day on time. Attendance is essential for students to be successful throughout the year, and the testing schedule is demanding. Unless your child is ill, he/she should be in school.
- Be sure that your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast. Wellness is important every day, especially during testing. Students who are well rested and nourished will perform to the best of their ability on assessments.
- Help your child relax and reduce unnecessary anxiety. Students are well prepared for important state assessments. Join us in reminding your child that testing is an opportunity to "show what you know."
