English Language Development Services

  • Students work with a highly qualified ELD teacher. Schools accelerate the acquisition of academic language by providing a comprehensive support system, where they receive specialized, comprehensive English language instruction. The acquisition of English requires a collaborative effort between teachers and specialists, as well as professional development for all staff on how to deliver rigorous, grade-level content and provide language-rich, instruction for all students.
  • Middle school English language learners focus on the different cultural or linguistic backgrounds compared to non-English peers. Students who qualify are offered ELD or resource support. The following skills are emphasized in the ELD setting: social communication, academic vocabulary, grammar, reading strategies, writing skills, as well as the use of technology.
