New Criteria for the 2018-19 School Year Coming Soon







Advanced English Language Arts

Chelsea school will offer Advanced ELA courses in grades 3, 4 and 5. The Advanced ELA class will be offered as a replacement for the Core ELA class. Advanced ELA classes will meet 5 days a week for the entire ELA period. This means that your child will either remain in their homeroom for the ELA block or, if criteria are met, they will be placed in the Advanced ELA class and transition to another teacher during the ELA block. Students must meet ONE of the below criteria. Criteria for Advanced ELA at Chelsea:

  • Terra Nova Reading 96% or above
  • PARCC ELA Performance Level 5
  • IF Terra Nova Reading scores are 95% then a second criteria of average of an A on all ELA Outcome Assessments (first attempt) will be taken into consideration

Notification of placement in the Advanced ELA course will take place in the summer. Students will not be added to courses midyear.
