At the elementary level (grades K – 5), all English Language Learners receive art, music, library, and physical education instruction with their peers in their regular education homerooms. They also eat lunch and participate in recess and special activities with their homerooms.
English language learners meet with the ESL teacher on a regular basis. The level of the students’ English proficiency determines the amount of support they get from the ESL teachers. The ESL teachers maintain regular communication with classroom teachers to plan for and collaborate in the students’ instruction. The ESL teacher is available to the classroom teachers to assist with modifying and adapting lessons and assessments to meet the needs of the ESL students.
