Welcome to Skyview Middle School ELL Program!
Emerging and Progressing ELL students follow the general education plan and also receive one ELL class period from a certificated ELL teacher. The ELD (English Language Development) class is designed to provide intensive English language development skills of speaking, listening, reading, writing and comprehension to ELL students to be successful in content area classes.
An ELL Paraprofessional provides supplemental academic vocabulary instruction through push-in, or small, flexible groups.
Students who have exited ELL services (Proficient) in the past 2 years are also provided support if there are academic needs."
English Learner services, in combination with general education, provides students (K-12) with linguistic development accessing grade level academic content as they acquire English language proficiency. English Learner students receive appropriately differentiated levels of direct services based on their language proficiency and grade level.
We BELIEVE that every student has the capacity to achieve academic success and make a positive contribution to society.
We VALUE the diversity of our community and recognize the importance of celebrating this diversity within the learning environment.
We RECOGNIZE that systemic barriers exist and are key contributing factors in the pervasive, disparate student achievement outcome within our school system.
Our diverse population of learners will have equal access to rigorous academic content while acquiring language proficiency through sheltered instruction so that they are ready for lifelong success after graduation. As a community we will create awareness that it takes from 5-10 years to achieve academic language proficiency and we assume simultaneous development of language and content-area knowledge.
