Multilingual Learners

We welcome our multilingual families! 

Multilingual students are supported through the District’s Multilingual Learner (ML) Program. All qualified students are served at their neighborhood school through a combination model of instruction and consultation in the general education classroom. 

The initial screening process for determining ML eligibility includes an evaluation using the WIDA screener. Annually, ML students take the WIDA assessment. This evaluates reading, writing, listening and speaking progress.

Students can exit the ML program once meeting proficiency on the annual WIDA assessment. These students are then monitored for two years to ensure continued growth.
