English Language Development (ELD)

English learners receive specialized language services taught by an English Language teacher. 

To support the Multilingual Learners (MLs) in our school district, our ESL specialists collaborate with the teachers to supply the students with instruction and materials that will allow them to advance in their language acquisition. This supplemental instruction takes place in the ELD classroom between the ESL specialist and a small number of students, as well as in the regular classroom when the ESL specialist pushes into some classrooms to provide additional language support. The ELD program provides the students with an environment that allows them to acclimate to their new surroundings and flourish in the classroom. We use many different learning strategies in our daily lessons to teach students at many different levels of proficiency. Also, the ACCESS for ELs 2.0 is a standardized test that is given yearly to track the progress of each Multilingual Learner, and it provides us with additional information regarding the areas in which students are struggling. In the summer, we hold a two-week summer camp to help MLs transition back to school (and to speaking English) for the upcoming year.

By law, parents have the right to refuse this educational service. Parents of students who receive English Language services and wish to discuss the right to refuse the educational service should contact our educational supervisors at 610-889-2125 x 52119.
