Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 101, Subchapter AA, Commissioner’s Rules Concerning the Participation of English Language Learners in State Assessments requires language proficiency assessment committees (LPACs) to make assessment decisions on an individual student basis and in accordance with administrative procedures established by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).

The resources on this page provide LPACs with the information they need to comply with state requirements as they monitor the progress and needs of English language learners (ELLs) and make state assessment decisions for the following:

  • State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR)
  • Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS)
  • Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS)

 NoteThe resources on this webpage take the place of TEA's annually published LPAC Decision-Making Process for the Texas Assessment Program manual.  As policies and documents are finalized, they will be posted as separate links. Documents updated or revised within a school year will indicate the date of revision.
