English Learner Education Program (ELE)

The ELE program is available to English learner (EL) students whose first language is a language other than English and who are unable to perform ordinary classroom work in English. When students enroll in a school a Home Language Survey is completed. If the survey indicates that a language other than English is spoken at home, students are assessed for EL services. English language development (ELD) and Sheltered Content Instruction (SCI) classes are offered. 

In ELD classes emphasis is placed upon the development of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in English and is intended to promote English language acquisition. SCI instruction includes approaches, strategies, and methodologies that make the content of the lesson more comprehensible to students who are not yet proficient in English. The overall program goals are to enable English learners to function independently and successfully in an English-speaking classroom and community, and improve the academic performance and English language proficiency of ELs across all grade levels.
