The primary goal of the EPS English Learner (EL) program is for each child to become proficient in the use of the English language.
Overview of Program
The EPS English Learner program implements procedures which:
- – Appropriately identify and evaluate students with limited English proficiency (LEP)
- – Determine appropriate Language Instruction Educational Programs for English learners
- – Monitor the progress of English learners using required District, state, and national assessments to determine academic progress and language proficiency
Once online registration is complete, an English learner teacher will contact parents/guardians to schedule English language proficiency assessments. Student eligibility is based on the results of a language proficiency assessment in the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
