English Language Learners (ELL)

  • New Albany Plain Local Schools continues to experience a significant population growth. Not only has the population increased in size, but the diversity has also expanded.  As a result, our English Language Learners (ELL) population has more than doubled in the past six years and continues to grow every day.  We currently have over 175 ELL students in grades K-12.  Our ELL students are immersed in our schools in all general classrooms and are supported according to their level of proficiency.  We provide English support through a variety of strategies depending on the need of the child, including the use of inclusion, pull-out programs, and additional support as needed.  In addition, the ELL Staff works closely with the classroom teachers in maximizing academic vocabulary development.  Through working collaboratively, our program’s goal is to have students become proficient in English in a timely matter.



ELL Department Goals

    1. Assure that ELL students attain English proficiency.
    2. Integrate language and content instruction to develop academic competencies.
    3. Meet the same challenging academic achievement standards as all other students.
