ELL-English Language Learners
About English Learner (EL) Program and Services
SPPS is committed to providing universal access to curriculum and grade-level standards for all students. WIDA standards, frameworks, and resources inform academic language instruction and EL identification in SPPS. Throughout the SPPS district, English Learners (ELs) receive EL services within general education classes through a collaborative and co-teaching model.
At Jie Ming, EL students in grades K-2 participate in EL services within a sheltered, small group setting with input and collaboration from their homeroom teacher. EL students in grades 3-5 receive EL services within their English general education classroom setting through a combination of push-in small group instruction, collaboration, and co-teaching.
