English Language Learners (ELL)

  • English Learners (ELs) are those students who speak a language other than English as their first language. The Christina School District provides ELLs with academic and social English language skills needed for them to be successful in school.  All students, including ELLs, follow the Christina School District curriculum and receive grades from their regular education teacher on grade-level standards.

    The following service options are available for ELLs in the Christina School District:

    Pull-Out Services 

    ELL students spend one period or more every other day with an ESL teacher in order to receive focused instruction in social and instructional language, vocabulary, communication, and the language of the content areas.

    Push-In Services

    ELL students receive instruction in the general education classroom alongside their peers as the ESL teacher collaborates with the regular education teacher and provides targeted instruction.
