• Migrant / Bilingual 

    As a district, we are committed to providing language development while honoring the student's primary language. 

    How do students qualify for a disrict's English language development program?
    When students enroll in school, parents are asked "What language did your child first learn to speak?" and "What language does your child use the most at home?".  If the answer to either question is a language other than English, the students takes the English Language Proficiencey Assessment (ELPA) Screener.  Students who score at the Emerging or Progressing levels of English proficiency on the ELPA Screener qualify for additional help to improve their English.
     
    Title IC-Migrant Education
    Programs assist students whose mobility raises barriers to success.  The program supports the unique educational as well as health needs of migrant students by enhancing their opportunities for personal success and advocating for quality services that promote responsible and productive individuals.
