Hill, Jane Donnelly; Flynn, Kathleen
Mid Continent Research for Education and Learning
This resource guide will help rural school districts with a low incidence of English language learners (ELLs) develop the capacity to build and implement a comprehensive program that meets both the academic and language proficiency needs of ELLs. Under Title III of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, ELLs must show increased academic achievement in content areas each year, even as they are also learning English. Low incidence districts, therefore, must seek creative means for delivering services to these students. This guide will assist administrators and teachers in such districts create and provide necessary services. The following are appended: (1) ELL Advisory Committee Survey; (2) ELLs Administrative Guide; (3) ELLs Administrative Guide--Identification of ELLs; (4) Language Development Profile for ELLs; and (5) Spanish Language Questionnaire.
