Student Services → Bilingual Assessment Team →
The Bilingual Assessment Team (BAT) provides services to school-age students who qualify for ESOL level 1, 2, 3, or 4 services.
When the IEP team suspects that a school-age ESOL level 1 or 2 student may be eligible for special education services, the school IEP team will recommend evaluation. The school should submit the appropriate referral for evaluation to the BAT unit.
School-age ESOL level 3 or 4 students are referred to BAT by their school's Educational Management Team prior to a referral being made to the screening Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team. The BAT will provide a language dominance determination for ESOL level 3 or 4 students.
Based on a student's dominant language determination, the BAT may provide appropriate eligibility assessments as requested by the IEP.
