English Learners (EL)

We provide English Learner Services based on learner needs for language acquisition and school success. 


Our English Learner Program Mission is to promote learner success, be a link between 5RiversOnline and home, and support increased language proficiency to the point where English Learner services are no longer needed.

Children and youth who experience homelessness have the right to receive a free, appropriate public education ensured by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2001. This law requires schools to remove barriers to enrollment, attendance, and success for homeless students.
