English Language Learners

General Purpose of the ELL Program

The English Language Learner (ELL) Program serves students whose first and/or spoken language in the home has been identified as other than English. Qualified ELL teachers and support staff (e.g., interpreters, translators, paraprofessionals) provide instruction and guidance to program students from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. A range of services and delivery models are provided, including pull-out, resource, and total immersion, so that ELL students are taught in the educational environment, manner, and/or setting which best meets their instructional needs and facilitates rapid acquisition of the English language.
