English Language Learning

  • Multilingual Learning

    The school offers opportunities for resident Multilingual Learners to achieve at high levels in academic subjects and to meet the same challenging State standards that all children are expected to meet. The State requires that families new to the District complete a Home Language Survey. This information is used to help identify students who need to be assessed for English language proficiency. If the assessment indicates a child would benefit from additional assistance, these services are offered. Each school in District 103 is staffed with a teacher qualified to assist students in improving their English language proficiency skills.

    Guardians of Multilingual Learners (ML’s) will be informed how they can: (1) be involved in the education of their children, and (2) be active participants in assisting their children to attain English proficiency, achieve at high levels within a well-rounded education, and meet the challenging State academic standards expected of all students.
