    English Learners (EL) Department
    MISSION: to prepare and provide English Learners with the necessary social and academic language skills to become independent, productive, and successful members of society.
     

    The EL program provides EL students with instruction in the English language by emphasizing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through the use of a structured English language approach. EL students are provided services in models that best fit the linguistic level of each student while not compromising the grade level content and rigor.  Likewise, SERVICE MODELS are differentiated to best meet individual student needs in the most inclusive environment.  A blend of age-appropriate, research-based instructional strategies, such as Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP), instruction in the WIDA English Language Development (ELD) Standards, and Project Based Learning and Assessment allows ELs to access the content of the general education classroom.
