English Language Learners
It is the intent of the Unified School District of De Pere (USDD) that every student in the district who has a primary language other than English and who is identified as limited English proficient (LEP) be provided with the opportunity to participate in an English Learner (EL) program. The EL program strives to enable limited English proficient students to become competent in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the English language in an academic setting and be able to participate fully in society. English learner services are provided by the District's certified EL Coordinator and EL staff. For more information regarding the EL Program, please contact Jeanne Adair, EL Coordinator, in the Pupil Services office (District office) at (920) 983-9174 ext. 4118.
All students will receive the language support needed to be actively engaged in their classroom with their peers in order to show growth and attain high achievement goals.
All educators will collaborate to provide language instruction in order to advance each student's English skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing.
The EL department will be culturally aware and responsive to the needs of our students, families, and community. The De Pere School District is committed to ongoing staff training and skill development in order to provide the best support for our students.
