English Language Services
The Ashburnham Westminster Regional School District administers a home language survey (HLS) to all new students enrolling in Pre-K through grade 12. The purpose of the HLS is to identify if the student has been exposed to a language other than English in their home and should be assessed for English language proficiency to determine whether or not the student qualifies for ESL instruction / an ELE program.
The Ashburnham Westminster Regional School District has developed the English Learning Success Template (ELST) to assist in helping ELs receive the planning and support they need to make progress. The template identifies the steps that are taken to help students meet their goals and benchmarks in attaining English proficiency.
