Identification of English Learners (ELs) upon enrolling in Radford City Schools
The USED Office of Civil Rights and in conjunction with the US Department of Justice has approved the following questions to demonstrate minimal compliance with the requirement to identify possible English Learners in need of Language Assistance:
uWhat is the primary language used in the home, regardless of the language spoken by the student?
uWhat is the language most often spoken by the student?
uWhat is the language that the student first acquired?
uThese identifying questions are included on all registration documents and on a separate Home Language Survey (included above) provided parents and guardians of all students enrolling in Radford City Schools.
uIf a parent or guardian responds with any language other than English for one or more questions, then the student should be progressed to the language screening process.
uCity Schools must ensure that incoming Els are identified, screened, and placed in appropriate programs and services within 30 days of enrollment, and must ensure that all Els enrolling in RCPS (McHarg Elementary, Belle Heth Elementary, John Dalton Intermediate School, and Radford High School) are identified in a consistent manner.
Monitoring Indicators for Title III, Part A are included for public review.The results of the Federal Monitoring will be posted when the results are finalized.
