English Language Acquisition

The English Language Acquisition program supports teachers in providing English Language Development instruction to English learners in order to help them achieve social and academic language proficiency. We focus specifically on developing skills in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and grammar. We are committed to providing our English learners access to high quality educational programs designed to ensure that they obtain full proficiency in English as rapidly and effectively as possible. The ultimate goal is to help them meet or exceed grade-level academic standards in a timely manner.

Three Instructional Coaches with specialized training in language acquisition support teachers in implementing English Language Proficiency strategies:

Tina Leach supports teachers at M.C. Cash.
Lora Morales supports teachers at Desert Meadows, Rogers Ranch, and Vista del Sur.
Staci Snow supports teachers at Laveen Elementary, Cheatham, and Trailside Point.
