English Language Learning

Brainerd Public School District 181 recognizes that within the district there are students whose primary language is not English or have family whose primary/first language is not English. The District shall provide appropriate educational support services for these students to help them acquire English Language Skills that will enable them to meet established academic standards.

Each student enrolled in Brainerd Public Schools will be given a Home Language Survey upon enrollment in the district that will be kept on file either in paper or electronically. If parents indicate any language other than English on any of the four questions, Brainerd Public Schools will screen and identify if the student is an English Language Learner or a Non-LEP. This identification process will take place within the first 30 days of enrollment if the student is enrolled during the first quarter (k-8th) or semester (9-12th) of school and within 10 school days if enrolled after the first term using the appropriate language proficiency assessment (WIDA screener 1-12 or Kindergarten MODEL for K). (MDE- Minnesota Standardized English Learner Procedures).
