The Home Language Survey, which is embedded in the registration form, is completed for every student when initially registering in the Lee County School System to determine if there is the influence of a language other than English. This survey contains three questions and will identify any languages other than English that are:
- first learned or acquired by the student
- used by the student in the home
- most often spoken in the student home
Eligible students are screened with the state-adopted proficiency test, the WIDA-ACCESS for ELLs Placement Test (W-APT) or the WIDA Measure of Developing English Language (MODEL) and are determined to be either proficient in English or at a level of English proficiency that can benefit from ESOL services.
