English Language Learners/Title III

The major objective of transitional bilingual instruction is for students to develop competence in English language skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening). Instructional assistance is provided by a certificated staff member. The program is intended to provide temporary services until LEP (limited English proficiency) students can develop adequate language skills.

Eligible students are in grades K-12 with a primary language other than English. Their English language skills must be sufficiently deficient or absent to impair learning in an all-English classroom.
