  1. Q How is my child identified as an English Learner?

    A Upon enrollment, parents fill out a survey called the “Home Language Survey.” If the Home Language Survey indicates that your child or any family member speaks/reads/writes another language at home, your child must take a state language assessment called the “California English Language Development Test.” If your child scored at the Beginning, Early Intermediate, or Intermediate level on the first assessment, they are identified as an “English Learner.”
