 Home Language Survey - Translated Versions


Beginning in 2017-2018, Title III law under the ESSA requires standardized statewide entrance and exit procedures for ESOL programs.  This necessitates the use of a universal, state-required Home Language Survey (HLS).  Federal guidance for this survey has been released and the translations provided by the Georgia Department of Education adhere to that guidance, namely by providing a clear statement of the form's purpose to parents/guardians and including three specific "language-related" questions as recommended by Bailey and Kelly (2012). Please note that the final question on the survey is not required, but is provided as a best practice to assist you in determining how best to send school documents home to families.
