English Learners (EL)
Our language program provides additional English language development and instruction for students whose home language is other than English (approximately 40% of SPPS students). Instruction focuses on increasing students’ English language skills so they can meet state and district academic standards.
Learning is achieved through collaborative teaching, accelerated language programs, and teaching core subjects in English. Most commonly, General Education and EL teachers deliver instruction as a team and give students daily interaction with native English-speaking peers.
