English Language Learning

The EL program supports students whose primary language is not English. From elementary through high school, our EL staff supports English learners’ reading, writing, listening and speaking skill development, while also helping students adapt to their new environment and academic courses. More than 80 different languages are spoken by our diverse student population. We are dedicated to helping English learners become independent and successful both in and out of the classroom.

The EL program is offered to students whose primary language is not English, and who have not yet shown full proficiency in academic English. Support is provided to reach both English Language Proficiency standards and Ohio's academic standards. We are committed to helping English learners transition into our district and achieve maximum learning. We want to provide a safe place for learning English and learning about our schools. We will teach each student the skills that they need to succeed. We work with students, parents and teachers to help our English learners meet their learning goals.

We are looking for Multilingual Parent Volunteers. If you are multilingual and would be willing to connect with other parents to help all parents understand our school technology systems and other school resources, we need your help! Please contact Christina Aprile for more information.
