English Language Learners
In our English as a New Language (ENL) program teachers work with the students to build their speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills in English using supports in the students’ home language. The goal of the program is to support students as they become English proficient. There are two types of English as a New Language programs:
- Integrated ENL: Students receive core content area areas (English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and/or Mathematics) and English language development instruction including home language supports and appropriate ELL scaffolds.
- Stand-alone ENL: Students receive English language development instruction taught by a New York State certified ESOL teacher in order to acquire the English language needed for success in core content areas (English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and/or Mathematics).
