 English Language Learner Program In USD 475

 Our community takes pride in embracing diversity!  If a second language has significantly impacted the development of English skills, we offer our English Language Learners support to build those skills.   Support is individualized to reflect the specific needs of each student.   It may be provided in a whole class, small group, or an individualized setting.   Our goal is that all ELL students master the same Kansas Standards as their English speaking peers while developing their English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to a fluent level.

Students whose parents indicate that they have been exposed to a second language on their enrollment form are screened to determine if they qualify for ELL support.  Parents whose children qualify will be notified. Students remain in the ELL program until they meet the criteria for exiting. That criteria includes good grades and proficient scores on state tests.

Contact Susan Pender for further information.

Programa de Aprendizaje del Idioma Ingles en USD 475

 ¡Nuestra comunidad se enorgullece de acoger la diversidad! Si un segundo idioma ha impactado de manera significativa el desarrollo de las habilidades en inglés, nosotros ofrecemos apoyo a nuestros estudiantes aprendices del idioma inglés para construir esas habilidades. El apoyo se individualiza para reflejar las necesidades específicas de cada estudiante. Este apoyo puede ser proporcionado para una clase entera, en grupos pequeños o en un ambiente individualizado. Nuestro objetivo es que todos los estudiantes aprendices del programa de Ingles dominen los estándares de Kansas al igual que sus compañeros que hablan Inglés, mientras a la vez van desarrollando su lectura, escritura, habla y escucha del Inglés a un nivel fluido.

Los estudiantes cuyos padres indican que han sido expuestos a un segundo idioma en su formulario de inscripción son examinados para determinar si califican para el apoyo de ELL. Los padres de los niños que califiquen serán notificados. Los estudiantes permanecen en el programa ELL hasta que cumplan con los criterios para salir. Ese criterio incluye buenos grados y un puntaje competente en los exámenes estatales.
