English Language Learners

English learners (ELs) are a diverse population of students who are learning English in school. They come from numerous cultural and economic backgrounds and a variety of linguistic backgrounds. ELs demonstrate unique language, academic, and social-emotional needs and require different kinds of support to succeed in the classroom.

Language Instruction Educational Program Plan


Mission and Program Goals

SCRED and its member districts are collectively striving toward the following mission for all of our students, including our ELs. This mission is at the heart of our EL programming:

Through data-based decision making, meaningful collaboration, and implementation of innovative, evidence-based practices, the St. Croix River Education District (SCRED) will be a leader in maximizing outcomes for all learners.

The goal of the SCRED EL program is to provide academic English language support to multilingual learners so they can acquire the skills and knowledge to achieve their academic, linguistic, and personal potential. This includes meeting the same challenging academic standards all Minnesota students are expected to meet. The EL Program promotes the beliefs that English learning happens across contents and curricula, all teachers are teachers of English learners, and multilingualism is an asset.  Additionally, our English Language licensed teacher provides a variety of evidence-based language instruction to students, along with support and consultation to classroom/content teachers to ensure the success of our EL students.
