English Learner Programs

Newcomer Class

These classes are designed for recent immigrants at the secondary school level who have little or no English proficiency. Instruction includes developing reading, writing speaking and listening skills to prepare students to transition into another program model of instruction.

English as a Second Language (ESL) Class

Using content curriculum, these classes are designed to teach a variety of language skills that include reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension.  In secondary school, students receive 1 Carnegie unit.


A program model that allows the EL teacher or paraprofessional to pull the students from their general education class for instruction in small groups or one-on-one.


For push-in services, the EL teacher goes to the students' regular classroom and helps the students with whatever work or activity is going on at that time.

Enrichment Bilingual

One class out of each grade level is chosen to participate in the Enrichment Bilingual program. Students in the chosen classes receive Spanish instruction 1-3 days a week. The intended purpose for the Enrichment Bilingual Class is for the Spanish speaking students to learn academic skills sooner than Spanish speaking students in other classes. Additionally, native English speaking students will be taught Spanish skills to provide foundational competences for advancement in secondary Spanish classes. These classes are designed for elementary school.
