ELD (English Language Development)
The goal of the ELD program is to increase proficiency levels for English language learners in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary. Students acquire the academic language necessary to function comfortably in the American classroom. The ELD teacher acts as a liaison between school and home. Recognizing the diversity of T/E students, the ELD teachers foster each child’s participation in the T/E schools while preserving the child’s own language and cultural heritage.
