English Learner Program (EL)
The English Learner Program is designed to address the unique needs of eligible students who come from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds. The Aberdeen School District provides English language development services and access to rigorous grade level curricula and instruction.
Teachers use instructional strategies to make grade-level standards and content accessible to all students, regardless of their proficiency.
Teachers review progress and provide targeted instruction to support students' individual language needs.
Imagine Learning Language & Literacy Program
With Imagine Learning Language & Literacy, every child receives explicit, targeted instruction within an individualized learning path that continually adjusts to their needs. Engaging activities teach critical language and literacy concepts such as reading and listening comprehension, basic vocabulary, academic language, grammar, phonological awareness, phonics, and fluency.
Multilingual/English Learner services support development of students' English language skills and ensure access to grade level academic content for all students. Students qualify for EL services until they reach a high level of English skills, not only in speaking and listening, but also in reading and writing.
