ELL Program Participation

The ELL program is designed to meet the educational needs of ELL students.  The ELL curriculum provides for the development of English language proficiency skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The following guidelines are used in determining instructional services:

ELL Services:

· Must be delivered by a certified teacher with English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement, or a certified teacher pursuing the additional endorsement.

· May be provided by an educational assistant under the supervision of an ELL teacher.

· Must be delivered during the regular school day, although supplemental support may include tutorials after school or summer school programs.
