English Language Learners (ELL) Services

We are dedicated to serving the needs of English Language Learners (ELLs)—students who speak a language other than English at home and score below proficient on English assessments when they enter our school system. Specifically,we provide English Language Learners, former English Language Learners, immigrants, and their families with equity and access to an excellent education. By providing professional development to teachers, staff, and leaders, promoting parental involvement, improving material resources, and creating targeted solutions for different ELL populations, we create a rigorous learning environment that focuses on academic achievement, language development, and cross-cultural support.

Many of our special education forms are available in English and Spanish, although they can be translated into a variety of other languages as well.
