English Language Learners

District 303 values the cultural diversity among our schools and is committed to meet the needs of its English Learners

The English Language Learner (ELL) Program is a Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI). ELL instruction is provided in English and helps children become successful in the standard academic subjects required for grade promotion. Lessons are scheduled during the school day for students who are eligible for the program. Students may remain in the program until they are able to fully participate in English independently. The ELL teacher works closely with your child's classroom teacher to plan and provide support for your child. As with all learning, the rate at which children are able to transition out of English language support is highly individual.

English Language Learners Research Findings:

  1. Research findings state that it is best if a child is taught to read in the language they already understand.
  2. When you, the parent, are trying to help your child with homework, use the language that YOU speak best.
  3. At home, speak to your child in their native language. Help to develop their reading and writing abilities by working with your child in their first language.
  4. Being bilingual in today's global world is a strength.
