ELL Specialists

  • At high schools with significant ELL populations, ELL Specialists collaborate with teachers to develop strategies for accommodating ELL students in mainstream classrooms. They provide information on effective methods and materials for use with ELLs. The ELL Specialists also help determine appropriate scheduling and class placements for ELLs.
