How We Serve English Learners

English Learner programs aim support students in developing English language skills, succeed academically, and overcome barriers that interfere with academic success.

Parents have the option to waive English Learners services at any time. Students who are on waivers are still required to take the English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) summative assessment.
