About English Language Proficiency
School districts in Texas are required by state law to assess the English language proficiency of all students whose Home Language Survey indicates that the home language is a language other than English.
If a child demonstrates limited English proficiency on the assessment, s/he will be eligible for enrollment in the appropriate language program as offered by the school: bilingual education or English as a Second Language (ESL). At this time, Hudson ISD offers an ESL program. The goal of both programs is to enable English language learners to become compentent in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing of the English language through the development of literacy and academic skills in grade level content areas.
