English Learner Program

program overview

program overview

The SDUHSD English Learner Program is an organized, content-based, culturally sensitive program of instruction in which participating students designated as English Learners (primary language other than English) are provided with literature and a writing-based English as a Second Language program. In addition, content area classes such as math, science, and social studies are taught in English using specialized techniques to provide equal access to the core curriculum. Whenever necessary, the primary language is used to support academic skills, bridging the way to second language learning.
The mission of the SDUHSD English Learner Program is to provide EL students with a rigorous curriculum and appropriate support services, which will develop academic English language skills. Our teachers utilize effective strategies, validate the native language and culture of all students, and work to create leadership roles for English Language Learners. The English Learner Program involves the entire SDUHSD learning community in its vision.
The SDUHSD English Learner Program’s purpose is to prepare and educate second language students for success in secondary education, with pathways to college and career success.
