English Learners

The English Learning population has been growing at Central Lyon.  

There are several resources available for the English Language Learning population.  This webpage has a link available to be translated into Spanish.  Within our school system we have a translator available.  

The English Language Learner (EL) program is designed to provide support to students who have limited English proficiency in grades K-12. The program is aligned to the state English Language Proficiency standards and the Common Core EL Standards. All limited English language learners are assessed for their language proficiency to determine program placement. 

The following programming is designed to bring students to proficiency in English while ensuring that they receive grade-level content instruction that is accessible to them at their current level of language proficiency:      

Push-In and Pullout English - ELL teachers support English Language Learners in their regular classroom by providing Push-In instruction. Push-In instruction requires EL and Classroom teachers to plan collaboratively and communicate frequently about individual student needs and classroom learning objectives. Students may spend additional time pulled out into specialized EL classrooms for more intensive language instruction. 

Proficiency is determined on scores from the state mandated I-ELDA and I-ELDA assessments.  Areas that are assessed are speaking, reading, writing, and listening.
