When a family indicates a language other than English on the Home Language Survey, Insight PA begins the English Learner Identification Process, following the procedures outlined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE).

PDE has instituted a parental right to refuse English Language Development (or “opt out” of ELD). Although it is not advised, if a parent so chooses, they may refuse specialized services or classes that are only provided for English Learners. Should you choose to opt your student out of ELD services, please contact our ELD Program Supervisor or Eligibility Coordinator.
