Who qualifies as an English Language Learner (ELL)?

Posted by:

An English Language Learner is a student in grades K-12 that is currently learning English to be successful in school.

Students who have a language besides English spoken in the home are evaluated to see if they need additional English language support to be successful in school.

ELL students are identified by the Home Language Survey which is completed by all parents when new students are enrolled.

KSD provides ELL services to students in all grades at all buildings, with full-time EL teachers at Reed Elementary School, Kuna Middle School, and Kuna High School.
