Parent/Guardian Information 

NOTE: The Madison Metropolitan School District may administer English and/or Hmong language proficiency and/or literacy assessments to your child in order to determine his/her language skills and to support linguistic balance. Students who are considered for the Hmong DBE program must indicate that the student has Hmong language exposure when registering. Students will also be required to have their English proficiency level assessed.

Commitment

Students need an extended period of time to reach high levels of proficiency in a second language. Many years of study are required for students to realize the academic achievement benefits of well-implemented dual language programs. It is important that your child remain enrolled in the Hmong DBE course of study for as many years as programming is available. Please check the box above to show your commitment to your child's continued participation in bilingual education in order to support their language and academic development.
