EL Student Placement

EL Student Placement: How are EL students identified and placed into services?

Your child was given a language test because a language other than English was entered on his/her Home Language Survey when he/she registered for school, and the language intake survey was completed with your family. This practice is in alignment with district policy and federal law. Students who have an overall score of less than 4.5 on the WIDA Screener are eligible to receive EL services with parental consent form. The goal of the program is to develop English communication and cognitive academic language skills so that the students can achieve academic success in the school community.
