The new Massachusetts English Language Proficiency Standards for Adult Education (MA ELPS) are here!  The MA ELPS are a single set of standards designed to prepare adult English language learners for the complex language tasks required to successfully meet life, academic, and career goals in the 21st century. They also provide ESOL adult educators and learners a common language for this journey and guide instructors in providing rigorous, scaffolded instruction that builds knowledge and transferable skills. 

An Overview of the new MA ELPS is available through SABES in online modules offered at the beginning of each month.  Visit the SABES calendar for more information and to register.
