English Learners

Philosophy:
The School District of Elmbrook strives to serve a student population that natively speaks over 30 languages other than English using a content-based, inclusionary approach as its primary delivery model. Our teachers use a wide variety of research-based and best practices to identify and teach EL students which includes placement guidelines, delivery support, and progress monitoring. Our EL teaching staff utilize a wide-range of support strategies and during the past two years the EL team has worked to increase the strategies available to the regular education teacher so EL students have the highest access to the regular education classroom.
