English Language Development

The Local Control Accountability Program at e3 is designed to build English proficiency for all English Learners by grade 12. The academic program provides certificated support across the curriculum to support scholars building their capacity for English proficiency.  Parents are an integral part of the process and are included in trainings and sessions designed to support the learning at home and at school.  
In addition to push in support, SIOP training for Learning facilitators, and 80% plus Friday tutoring session, EL scholars are enrolled in the Specialized English Instruction course during eBlock for intensive work in mastering the English language.  It is the goal to reclassify better than 20% of e3 scholars each year as English Proficient learners.
