What the Expert Says:

According to most state laws, parents can choose to withdraw their children from any program, including ELL services at any time.  The only stipulation may be that you will be asked to sign a document acknowledging that your child may have a difficult time in an 'English-only' classroom and that he may or may not graduate from high school with his class or peers.  If you want to withdraw your child, go visit the school principal and request a copy of the withdrawal policies. Advise him/her that you wish to withdraw your child from the special ELL services and that you understand your rights and responsibilities.

This State of Washington website about the Washington Language Proficiency Test II may be helpful to you: It includes a link to contact information to follow up with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

You might also contact your child's school to see if they can help with your request. If you don't have the school's phone number handy, you can use SchoolFinder to research it: The page for your child's school in SchoolFinder will include a link to the school district. If the school is closed for the summer, contact the district office to see if they can answer your questions about the ELL program policies.

Below are some additional informational resources you may also find helpful. Thank you for asking!
