Eligibility for Language Services

Colorado state law requires that school districts must ascertain the primary language of every student using the Home Language Survey (HLS.) This is to ensure that each and every non-native speaker of English is appropriately identified. When a student enrolls initially in a school district, it is important to identify the primary language of the student. In Westminster Public Schools, upon enrollment, every family completes the HLS for their students. The form is then sent the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (CLDE) registrar.

A student who identifies any language other than English to one or more of the questions in the student language information section is considered to have a primary language other than English. Upon completion of the eligibility process, families are then notified by the schools of the additional services that their child will receive through the ELD program. If you have any questions regarding your child’s identification, please contact Genevieve Vargas or the CLDE specialist at your child’s school.
