English Language Learners

Paragraph 1

The Douglas County School District’s English Language Development (ELD) program focuses its human and funding resources on assisting students who are learning English as a new language as they learn the language sufficient for academic success.

Specifically, the focal point of the ELD program is to increase the proficiency levels of English learners (ELs) in the skill areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing so that they acquire the academic language and social/cultural skills to function in the regular education setting.
