ELD (English Language Development) Program
The English Language Development program is for students whose primary home language is other than English. The goal of the ELD (English Language Development) program is to increase proficiency levels for English learners (EL’s) in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary, and to provide students with the capacity to succeed in school, both academically and socially. The ELD program specialist also acts as a liaison between school and home. Recognizing the diversity of T/E students, the ELD program specialists foster each child’s participation in the T/E schools while preserving the child’s own language and cultural heritage.
