    For those students who completed the lottery process during the window and completed the Home Langauge Survey and the response indicated the use of a language other than English, English language proficiency testing will be conducted when it is safe to conduct face-to-face assessments. You will be contacted in advance to schedule a testing date/time.  Testing will likely occur in late July/early August, depending on state and local health guidelines.
