On April 3, 2017, the New York State Board of Regents (BOR) approved a protocol for Emergent Multilingual Learners developed to guide and support state-funded Prekindergarten programs in implementing best practices relative to the role of the home language. At the April meeting, staff was directed to utilize the Emergent Multilingual Learners (EMLLs) Language Profile for Prekindergarten Students as part of an EMLL Profile Process to identify when a prekindergarten student’s home or primary language is other than English. The Language Profile is available in 24 languages.
