Why do schools have English Learner programs? 

 

Why do schools have English Learner programs?

 


Since the ability to listen, speak, read, and write well in English is so important, both Minnesota and Federal laws require that every district monitor and provide services to all students to make sure they are making progress in their learning. English language learning services help the English language learners participate meaningfully in educational programs and to succeed socially and academically in all of their classes.

 

The EL Program at Fairmont Elementary School does not take the place of regular classroom instruction. Whether the EL teacher goes into their classroom to give support or takes students out in a smaller group, the goal is that each of them become more confident and proficient in the academic English skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
