Enrolling an English Language Learner

  • Students who speak a language other than English or in addition to English must take an English Language proficiency assessment when enrolling in our district as required by law.

    Any student registering in our district will go directly to their neighborhood school, where they will fill out a Home Language Survey (which is a federal mandate). If a language other than English is spoken in the home, it will be indicated on this form. The building registrar will register the student and then communicate with the ELIAC Coordinator if an assessment needs to take place.

    • Immunization records
