English Language Learners
Our ELL classes focus on communication and increasing proficiency in English. Teachers work closely with content teachers to provide our ELL students with greatest possible opportunity to achieve academic success.
Our department strives to support and educate all non-native English speakers to become fully proficient in English and to gain an understanding of U.S. cultures so that they can be successful citizens in our dynamic global society.
Our department is comprised of outstanding ELL teachers! Our educators fulfill a wide variety of roles across the district, both at the school level and at the county-level as well. ELL teachers focus on providing relevant and high-quality instruction in all grade levels throughout the district.
The enrollment of English Language Learners [ELLs] in KCS has doubled within the last five years and continues to increase rapidly. Currently over 4,100 English Learners are attending KCS our schools in 2020-2021. They represent more than 100 countries and speak over 90 different langauges and dialects.
We are fortunate to have dedicated teachers who share their expertise and professional experiences by participating in monthly ELL Professional Learning Community sessions, working on curriculum committees, leading high-quality professional learning opportunities, and much more!
