English-Language Proficiency Screening
As required by law, the Office of Second Language Acquisition staff administers an English proficiency assessment to children who have indicated a language other than English is spoken by a parent/guardian, student or caregiver in the home. The assessment results are shared with the child's parent/guardian along with an explanation of which Cincinnati Public School would best meet the child's needs.
