ELL Department

ELL Department

This department supports academic language development for our students who speak a language other than English at home. It focuses on the four domains of language: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Support is offered in multiple ways, determined by the language proficiency of the student:

  1. Instruction by the ELL teacher in a support class.
  2. Instruction with a bi-lingual assistant in core subject classrooms.
  3. Students are monitored by an ELL Case Manager. Support continues until student exits the ELL program by scoring at an L4 level on the state assessment, ELPA21.
