English Language Acquisition Department
The English Language Acquisition Department (ELAD) provides targeted support to educators and families of English learner students. English learners are students who are multilingual and come from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds, representing a variety of native and world languages as well as a number of different English proficiency levels.
ELAD is a critical partner invested in the success of English learners and uses the expertise and the cumulative experience of educators in Mesa Public Schools to guide school sites, teachers, and families in effective ways to support high English learner student achievement.
As a department ELAD believes in equity for all English learners as we strive to fulfill Mesa Public School’s promise of knowing every student by name, serving them by strength and need, and helping ensure that they graduate ready for college, career, and community.
