Language Testing

  • Upon enrollment for the first time to a Texas public or charter school, all students are required by the state to complete a Home Language Survey that will answer two questions [19TAC §89.1215 (b)]:

    Question 1: What language is used most often in the home?

    Question 2: What language is used most often by your child?

    If the response to either question is a language other than English, your child will need to get language testing through the district. See below for details.
