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).
