District 622 is required by law to identify English Learners (ELs) in need of language assistance services. A Home Language Survey (HLS) is completed at the time of enrollment to gather information about a student’s language background. The information provided on the HLS determines student eligibility for the English language proficiency assessment: the WIDA Screener, The WIDA Kindergarten Model, and the Pre-LAS. District 622 follows state guidelines for identifying EL students. For more information visit: Minnesota Department of Education.
