K–12 EL Programs

PWCS provides a program of language instruction at each K-12 school in supportive settings so that ELs attain proficiency in English and meet the same challenging academic content and student achievement standards as other students. Components of instruction include:

  • Academic language instruction to students at English Language Proficiency (ELP) levels 1–5 for success in language arts, math, social studies, and science;
  • Delivery styles to maximize service opportunities: Co-taught, push-in, pull-out, inclusion, and EL-Only class; and
  • Support from ESL-certified teachers and content teachers knowledgeable in techniques which support English language development (ELD).
