English Language EL
The Howard-Suamico School District English Learner Program is committed to ensuring that all of our students receive the best education possible. The HSSD EL Program supports learners in developing English language needed to succeed in school and beyond. Language instruction is delivered by licensed EL teachers and highly qualified EL paraprofessionals at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Instruction is delivered in English and targets the development of both language and academic content.
Our K-12 EL instructional model emphasizes learning language through content. EL teachers help students build a foundation of content knowledge, academic problem-solving skills, and language proficiency. Our program is designed to help limited English-proficient students improve their English speaking, reading, writing, and listening and empower them to become self-sufficient in a general education classroom.
