English Learners (formerly ESL)

The English Language Program (EL) in Centennial School District # 12 provides opportunities for students who speak languages, other than English, to become fluent in English.

At the elementary level, service is provided through pullout and inclusion. Secondary level service is provided as a class within the student's schedule. The EL teachers and classroom teachers work collaboratively to plan instruction that is most beneficial for the academic and language needs of the students. Instruction is given in the four modalities of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

EL programs are available at Centennial High School, CALC, Pines School, Centennial Middle School, Blue Heron Elementary, Centennial Elementary, Centerville Elementary, Golden Lake Elementary, and Rice Lake Elementary. 

If you would like more information, please contact Scott Johnson, Director of Teaching and Learning at 763-792-6006.

English Learner Identification Criteria and Procedures

A student considered “limited English proficient” (LEP) would include any student who meets the following requirements.

Entrance/Exit Criteria

The ESL teachers work closely with the classroom teacher to determine who is eligible to enter and exit the EL program.  The EL program uses multiple measures to determine entrance and exit from the EL program. 

English Learner Programs, Amount and Scope of Sequence

English learners are placed in a program that best fits their level of language proficiency as determined by the ESL teacher.

English Learner Exit Criteria and Reclassification

The EL program uses state criteria to determine whether an EL student is ready to exit from the EL program.
