English Language Development

Central City Value Students visit local museumPrior to or at the start of each school year, Central City Value identifies each student’s proficiency in the English language and provides developmentally appropriate English Language Development (ELD) instructionto students who may need additional support. Each student’s enrollment package contains a Home Language Survey (HLS) which helps determine if a language other than English is used in the home. The HLS is not used to determine a student’s language classification or immigration status and consists of the following four questions:

  1. What language did the student learn when he or she first began to talk?
  2. What language does this student most frequently use at home?
  3. What language do you use most frequently to speak to this student?
  4. Which language is most often used by the adults at home?

If you have questions about the English Language Development program at Central City Value High School, please reach out with any questions.
