All students are required to fill out a Home Language Survey that will answer two questions: [19TAC §89.1215 (b) ]:
- What language is spoken most of the time at your home?
- What language is spoken most of the time by your child?
If the response to either question is another language other than English, the student will be given an oral test to determine English fluency. In some circumstances the student will also be given a standardized test.
If the student scores “Limited English Speaker” or “Non-English Speaker” the Language Proficiency Assessment Committee will recommend the bilingual or the ESL program language program.
