Ka'ewai's ELL Program

The statewide English Language Learner (ELL) Program ensures students with limited English proficiency (1) have access to educational opportunities by providing services that assist these students with the attainment of English language proficiency, (2) develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and (3) meet the same challenging State academic content and student achievement standards all students are expected to meet. Services to ELL Program students include instructional services consisting of English as a Second Language (ESL) type instruction and acculturation activities. The ELL Program supports the Department’s mission to provide standards-based education through supplementary instructional and acculturation activities. Services provided through the ELL Program implement the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its regulations, and the Equal Educational Opportunities Act (EEOA) of 1974. With regard to students with limited English proficiency, Title VI and its regulations require that students are able to participate in, or benefit from, regular or special education instructional programs. Services to ELL Program students and Immigrant Children and Youth also implement the requirements of Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (Title III). Title III requires ELL Program students attain English proficiency, and meet the same challenging academic standards all students are expected to meet.
