English Learners

English Learners

MVLA offers comprehensive programs and services to students who are identified as English Learners.  Upon enrollment in a public school in California, families are asked to complete a Home Language Survey as part of their enrollment process. Students who have a language other than English listed on their home language survey are assessed for their proficiency in English.  Based on the results of these assessments, a student will be identified as an English Learner (E.L.) or initial Fluent English Proficient (I.F.E.P.). The English Learner designation will stay with a student until that student is reclassified as fluent English proficient.

 

If the student is identified as an English Learner, the length of time in the United States and the results of the assessments will determine which English Language Development (ELD) program the student will be placed in.

Additionally, parents/guardians of all potential English Learners (ELs) are notified in writing about program options for English Learners. They are also notified regarding their right to visit the program/classes, their right to request a withdrawal from the program, their option to request a waiver, and their right to participate in the school and district English Learner committees.
