When students are registered for school in District 34, parents complete a Home Language Survey. Students who have a language other than, or in addition to, English spoken at home, as indicated on the Home Language Survey, are screened by the EL staff using the MODEL or W-APT screener.

Parents of students eligible for EL services will be notified by letter of their child’s eligibility and the EL Program they will receive. If there are questions about the assessment results or the services offered, parents are encouraged to contact the EL staff at their child’s building.
