At the time of registration parents complete a Home Language Survey (HLS). A student is tested to determine English language proficiency when the parent checks "yes" to any of the 3 questions found on the HLS.

The initial test is the IDEA Oral Proficiency Test (IPT). This test is given to students in grades K-12 and helps determine the need for ESOL services. It is also used to exit students from the program in grades K-2. The IPT assesses the student's ability to comprehend and respond to the spoken language.

In addition, students in grades 3-12 also take the IPT Reading and Writing tests to determine the need for services.

More information can be found at the IPT website.
