Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Robbinsville Public Schools offers English as a Second Language services for all students whose native language is other than English. To determine which students might benefit from participation in our English as a Second Language (ESL) program, a language prescreening was conducted. Those students who were identified during the prescreening will be more thoroughly tested with a language proficiency test, called the IPT, in order to determine what specific services they need.

Our ESL teachers would like permission to administer the IPT to your child. Please sign the bottom portion of this form so that testing may be completed, and return the form to your child’s teacher as soon as possible. All testing will be conducted during the school day, and the results of your child’s level of English language proficiency will be recorded and sent to you. Services will then be recommended based on your child’s needs. Please note that the IPT is also administered to all ESL students at the end of the school year to help determine their progress and placement for the following year. If you have any questions about the English as a Second Language program or the IPT, please contact me at 632-0910 ext. 2211.
