ELL Department Vision

Imagine every student

  • proud of their own cultural heritage, with a clear appreciation for the many cultures which compose the richness of our community
  • challenged, supported and inspired to graduate to something great

Imagine every family

  • welcomed in a language they understand, by staff who embrace the wealth of diversity within our schools
  • empowered with the knowledge and tools to nurture their children’s educational efforts
  • sharing their cultural heritage with the students, families and staff that make up our school district community

Imagine our community

  • stronger for the gifts that we collectively contribute to the education of our children
  • richer in well-prepared, linguistically diverse and culturally proficient graduates
  • prepared to create a bright future together
