Our students are supported in language development and academic growth throughout the day. In addition to Designated ELD, students receive language support during core and content subjects (English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science) through Integrated ELD. These practices include academic vocabulary instruction, structured academic talk using response frames, and scaffolded guided writing. 

Intensive (far below basic) level readers in grades four – twelve, receive reading intervention and English Language Development through instruction in the Scholastic READ 180 program.
