• We have a recently arrived immigrant student. How do we proceed?

    Posted by:

    Immigrant students may or may not be an English learner. Districts should follow the same procedures for recently arrived immigrants as they would any student enrolling for the first time to determine if the student may be an English learner: have the parents complete a HLS, and advance to screening if the HLS indicates a need. Immigrant students, regardless of EL status, should be coded in the OASIS data collections as such for three years after the student’s arrival in the US. For information regarding state content assessments and immigrant students who are also English learners, see Appendix A of the EL Student Identification, Assessment & Data Reporting guide.
