Emerging Multilingual/English Learner Program
The district uses a variety of research-based approaches for educating its ELL population, depending upon both the age of the students and the level of English proficiency. For English Language Development (ELD) instruction, the district uses ELD Pullout (elementary) and ELD Class Period (secondary). For content instruction, the district uses sheltered instruction approaches. These approaches all have a strong research base and fall under the descriptors provided by the Oregon Department of Education.
