English Learners (EL)
The English Learner Program provides instruction for all students who are learning English. Students receive instruction primarily in English and are provided with an English Language Development program. In addition, students receive sheltered instruction in the core content areas and primary language support as needed.
Students who are reasonably fluent in English are placed in mainstream classes and receive services to learn English in those classes. They will continue to receive instruction n English Language Development and core subjects through effective instructional strategies from teachers. When students achieve English fluency they are re-designated “Fluent English Proficient.” They then exit the English Language Development program and are enrolled in mainstream English/Language Arts classes.
Parents are notified annually of their child’s English fluency level and program placement.
