Language Testing Information & Plan

View translations: ChinesePortugueseSpanish

Please note:
If your child does not speak the program language for Amigos, Chinese Immersion or Ola, they do not need a program language test.

Language testing to determine your child’s eligibility for program language bonus points for Amigos, Chinese Immersion Program or the Ola Program will be held remotely unless you prefer to schedule an in-person appointment and make your preference known to us at the time we schedule the test.

All language testing to determine eligibility for program language bonus points must be completed by 4PM on Friday, January 29, 2021 in order for the results to be included in the January 2021 JK/K Lottery. The last testing slot on Friday, January 29, 2021 will start at 2:30PM.

We wish you to use the information and plan for language testing in order to best prepare yourselves and your child. We also strongly encourage you to register early in the month of January so you may secure a testing slot that is convenient for your family. Testing slots fill up fast, and, as the month goes on, your options will be limited.

  • Remote tests and In-Person tests are the exact same test.
  • Remote tests will be scheduled for ½ an hour.
  • In-Person tests will be scheduled for 1 hour due to staff needs to disinfect between appointments.
  • If your child tests remotely, please keep in mind the following:
    • We will contact you via the primary e-mail address you provide on your child’s registration. Please ensure that it is correct and legible.
    • One parent/guardian must be available during the remote testing session.
    • The parent/guardian can’t assist the child during the remote testing session.
    • We will not schedule any remote testing sessions to take place while your child is at preschool, daycare, or another childcare setting.
  • If your child tests in-person at the SRC, please keep in mind the following:
    • We will contact you via the primary email address you provide on your child’s registration. Please ensure that it is correct and legible.
    • We will email the appointment procedures for in-person visits to the SRC after we schedule the test and the day before the test.
    • One parent/guardian must accompany the child to the testing session.
    • For health & safety matters, the parent/guardian who accompanies the child to the SRC will sit in the hallway during the test.
