English Learners Program

Program Overview

The English learners program is designed to provide supports and services for students that address their English language and academic needs. The program facilitates student learning in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and cultural knowledge.

The program helps ensure students receive the assistance needed to reach high levels of English proficiency as soon as possible so that they can successfully benefit from the total school program. The program provides individualized instruction, collaborations with other students, structured supports for matriculation in the general education classrooms, and engagements with authentic language learning to assist them in becoming familiar with cultural nuances, while valuing the student’s native language and culture. 

Services

Services are supported by scientific and evidence based research so that students receive effective instruction that leads to academic achievement and timely acquisition of English language proficiency. Services are consistent with standards published by the Ohio Department of Education and with the Office of Civil Rights.
