Students receiving ESL services have moved here from other countries and they may have difficulty understanding and speaking English. Services must be provided to these students regardless of what their native languages are and regardless of whether or not the district has staff who speak their languages.
All incoming students are given a Home Language Survey that must be completed and returned to the Office of Accountability, whether a student is eligible for services or not. The survey is one of the measurements used to determine the level of service a student requires. Initial assessments are completed once children have been registered to attend school.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Accountability at 216-865-4718.
