LAS Links Connecticut Announcements

Connecticut DRC LAS Links Website


The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) will be using the LAS Links Assessment for the ELP Assessments for eligible students in Grades K-12 for the 2024-25 test administration. The CSDE believes that high-quality, comprehensive, and effective English as a Second Language (ESL) and bilingual education programs are essential to acquire English language proficiency and academic proficiency for students who are English learners/multilingual learners (ELs/MLs). The CSDE believes that research-based instructional practices that support ELs/MLs in general education classrooms are essential while they are acquiring English and well after they have exited the intensive programs.
