Rule 15 Sample Home Language Survey

Rule 15 contains a Sample Home Language Survey in Appendix A with three questions required under the rule. The sample survey has been translated into these languages:

  • Spanish
  • Arabic
  • Somali
  • Karen
  • Vietnamese

The Nebraska Department of Education has purchased a statewide license to TransACT for the 2012-13 school year which allows districts unlimited access to their library of forms. You can find the English and translated surveys on the TransACT portal located at www.transact.com.

After logging on to TransACT, you can locate the state Home Langauge Survey by clicking on the following:

  • GenEd Parent Notifications folder
  • School, Office & Classroom folder
    • State Masters

From there, click on the "Home Language Survey-NE." The orange tab accesses the various language(s). Your district name will automatically be filled in at the top of the form once you view and print it.

If you have any difficulty logging into TransACT, please email them at support@transact.com or call them at 425.977.2100
