Home Language Survey



Upon enrollment, every student or parent/guardian must be given a Home Language Survey. This survey will be used to determine which students should be assessed for English proficiency. Knowledge of, or exposure to another language does not, in and of itself, qualify a student for ESOL services. If a language other than English is indicated in any of questions 1-4, the student will be assessed to determine eligibility for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) services. The assessments approved by Kansas State Department of Education include: The Language Assessment Scales (LAS)/LAS LINKS/Pre-LAS, the IDEA Proficiency Test (IPT)/Pre-IPT, the Language Proficiency Test Series (LPTS), and the Kansas English Language Proficiency Assessment (KELPA)/KELPA-P. If a student scores below proficient/fluent in any of the language domains: listening, speaking, reading, or writing, s/he is eligible for ESOL services. Please complete one form for each child.
