English Language Learning

EL Services

The English Learner (EL) program in District 885 supports learners in acquiring the English needed to succeed in the classroom, in accordance with the State of Minnesota Guidelines and English Language Proficiency Standards. EL licensed teachers to provide direct English language instruction to identified students in the domains of speaking, listening, reading, and writing, as well as provide consultation support to classroom teachers, support staff, and students based on each student’s English language learning needs. Para-educators and specially trained teachers support mainstream classroom instruction for EL students.
