Bilingual Education and World Languages

Students that are English Language Learners (ELL) will be prioritized for in-person instruction. Parents will still be able to choose the option of in-person or virtual learning.

Communication  regarding our reopening plan will be provided to parents in their preferred language. The ELL identification, screening, placement, review and exit process will be completed within 30 days of the start of school for students that enrolled from March to August 2020. After this 30-day period, identification of ELL students will occur within the required 10 school days of initial enrollment.  ELL teachers will continue to progress monitor students to identify gaps toward English language proficiency.

Regardless of instructional model, required instructional units of study will be provided to all ELL students based on their most recently measured English language proficiency.

For information about regular communication and engagement with parents/guardians of English-language learners, visit the Communication/Family and Community Engagement section of our reopening plan.
