ELL Parent Information

ELL staff provides information and services regarding enrollment, attendance, and school district expectations for “new to the district” ELLs and their families. A Welcome booklet was developed by the department which provides students and their families with important information regarding graduation requirements and courses the students are required to complete. ELL staff work closely with parents, principals, school counselors, and school registrars to facilitate a smooth transition into our schools.

Introductory Information for parents

This Welcome Booklet addresses questions ELL newcomers may have about middle school classes for English Language Learners (ELLs). The booklet also gives new ELLs and their families a quick overview of other general middle school issues.
