English Language Acquisition Department

The English Language Acquisition Department (ELAD) supports English Learners (ELs) representing a variety of Native and World languages.  English learners come with different proficiency levels ranging from pre-emergent/emergent to basic to intermediate.  Our goal is to provide instruction that aligns with Arizona's 2019 English Language Proficiency Standards to implement  the state mandated Structured English Immersion Models for all elementary and secondary English learners. The focus is on Productive, Receptive, and Interactive modes of communication. The outcome of the ELD program is for students to reach proficiency in English and academic success in all content areas through integrated instruction in disciplinary language and content and targeted and explicit Instruction.

The English Language Acquisition Department facilitates cooperation between families and community agencies, to provide support in meeting the social, physical, and emotional needs of English learner students. ELAD advocates for understanding and acceptance of multi-cultural diversity.
