Description & Contact Information for Student Programs


Educators and psychologists are agreed that more learning takes place during the first five years than at any other period in life. It is during these formative years that character and personality are developed, and basic attitudes formed.  Preschool education provides for the optimal development of children during their preschool years.

English Language Learner (ELL)

The English Language Learner (ELL) program assists students whose first language at home is not English. Students are supported in language development, particularly in listening and reading comprehension, and language production, speaking and writing.

State and Federal regulations state that all schools must provide English Language Development (ELD) to English Language Learners (ELL) until they are reclassified as Fluent English Proficient (FEP). Our ELD program is implemented in grades K-12.  The design of the program is determined by the English fluency level of the student.  English fluency levels are based on several different measures, the primary measure is the California English Language Development Test (CELDT).   The CELDT is administered once a year, in the Fall, to all English Language Learners regardless of the student’s primary language.  If a student scores at the beginning or early intermediate level on the CELDT, the student is considered “less than reasonably fluent” and primary language support is offered in addition to the ELD program.  A student is classified as an English Language Learner based on the Home Language Survey that parents/guardians fill out when registering their child.

The State mandates that Schools and Districts reach out to parents of limited English proficient students. The mandate requires a functioning English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) for schools with 21 or more English learners and a functioning District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) in districts with 51 or more English learners.  All parents of English learners are given an opportunity to elect ELAC members and each school has the opportunity to elect at least one member to the DELAC.  Some of the duties of the ELAC include reviewing and commenting on:  the development of the Single School Plan for Academic Achievement, the needs of English Learners including instructional programs and support services, the R30 Language census, the school-wide needs assessment, and the importance of regular school attendance.   ELACs may vote to delegate its responsibilities to another existing school committee such at the School Site Council once every two years.
