English Learners

Our EL Program Model at Woodmoor is a combination of additional time and in-class support.  We offer:

  1. Morning Program 
  2. Lunch Bunch
  3. In-class support from an EL certificated teacher or para-educator (occurs during independent reading, writing, and/or math).

We test our incoming EL Kindergarten students in the spring before they start school and then conduct EL home visits in the summer to sign students up for our EL Morning Program. 

For district EL information, please see below.

English Learner services, in combination with general education, provides students (K-12) with linguistic development accessing grade level academic content as they acquire English language proficiency. English Learner students receive appropriately differentiated levels of direct services based on their language proficiency and grade level.

  • We BELIEVE that every student has the capacity to achieve academic success and make a positive contribution to society.

  • We VALUE the diversity of our community and recognize the importance of celebrating this diversity within the learning environment.

  • We RECOGNIZE that systemic barriers exist and are key contributing factors in the pervasive, disparate student achievement outcome within our school system.

Our diverse population of learners will have equal access to rigorous academic content while acquiring language proficiency through sheltered instruction so that they are ready for lifelong success after graduation. As a community we will create awareness that it takes from 5-10 years to achieve academic language proficiency and we assume simultaneous development of language and content-area knowledge.
