District 92

About The ELL Program


  The English Language Learners (ELL) Program was

  developed to meet the Federal (Title III)/State

  compliance regulations, which mandate language support

  services for students whose first or native language is

  not English.

  District 92 provides support services as a K-8 pull-out

  program that requires students to leave the mainstream

  classroom for varying periods of time per day or week.

  Pull-out classes provide intensive English language

  acquisition instruction and are delivered in a classroom

  setting with a low student/teacher ratio. This provides

  an opportunity for skill-focused English instruction that

  is individualized to meet student needs.

Program Eligibility

Students are eligible for ELL services if they speak

a language other than English, as indicated on the

D92 Home Language Survey, and receive a qualifying

score on the WIDA Screener.

ELL students are assessed annually to measure growth of social and academic language with the state approved English Language Proficiency test, ACCESS for ELLs. When the students score at a
certain level of language proficiency in English, they are eligible to exit the program. Exited students
continue to be monitored for two years.
