• Department of Language Services

    The vision of the Department of Language Services is to innovate teaching and learning, to inspire English language learner and multilingual students to imagine and realize their full personal, social, and academic potential to be contributing members of our ever changing diverse global society.

    The Department of Language Services is dedicated to serving the needs of English language learners. We support the District in providing English language learners (ELLs) with the full range of learning opportunities equivalent to those provided to native speakers of English. We are also committed to providing our English learners access to high quality K-12 educational programs designed to ensure they acquire full proficiency in English as rapidly and effectively as possible, in order to meet or exceed grade level standards for academic achievement in a timely manner.
