TK-8 District of Choice

Language Proficiency Assessment

Evergreen School District follows California state and federal law requiring local educational agencies administer a state test of English language proficiency to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve.

When first entering school, California requires all parents to complete a home language survey when they register their children for school. The survey asks: 
  • What language did this student learn when first beginning to talk?
  • What language do you use most frequently?
  • What language does this student most frequently use at home? 
  • What language is most often spoken by the adults at home? 
If the answer to any questions on the survey is a language other than English the student's English proficiency will be evaluated. Students are assessed using the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC).
