Wen,

Wow! I've downloaded these to give me time to look closely at them. You guys have well documented your journey and your direction for the near future and are open to share with others. Thanks so much! I know that there were many great conversations that went on (that I missed out on!) as you guys were drafting these. To answer your question, Wen: YES!

Thanks, Wendy, for your warmest welcome and for trying to get EAL people together-hopefully the turn out will be fantastic since we re all EAL teachers, afterall!
I was just going through your posted documents-admission policy, action plan, etc.You and the team at your school did a fantastic job on those!Would you be so kind to share through an e-mail to fcbaciu@yahoo.com what the test is (and how to find it asap) that you are using for admissions in K-12?
Thanks so much for sharing and for your most useful initiative!
