Subject:  Dates for 2013 I-ELDA Training Sessions

Hello Everyone.  It is once again time to be thinking about administering the Iowa English Language Development Assessment (I-ELDA) to your English Language Learners.  This is a mandated assessment given on an annual basis to assess the progress our ELLs are making in their English language acquisition.  Teachers administering this assessment must be trained.  This year’s training will be offered through Adobe Connect.  The training has been divided into three sections.  You only need to attend the sections that pertains to you.  Finalized dates and times are listed below.

January 8 (8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m.) Logistics (ordering and submitting Bubble Answer Sheets (BAS))
January 8 (10:00 - 12:00) Grade Levels K-2
January 22 (1:00 - 3:00) Grade Levels 3-12

Training sessions will be recorded and archived for those who cannot attend the training on the scheduled dates.

For those of you who would like to view the training with other educators, I have reserved a room at the Sioux City AEA and a room at the Sioux Center AEA.  If you choose to attend in Sioux City, please go to Room F on January 8th and Room G on January 22nd.  Kathy Perret will be your facilitator.  If you choose to attend in Sioux Center, please go to the conference room.  Sherri Anderson will be your facilitator.  As soon as we receive the adobe link and invitation information we will forward it to you.  If you have any questions please contact Sherri Anderson at or Carla Roghair at

Happy New Year!  Have a wonderful week.

Northwest AEA Title III Coordinator
