English Language Learners
The vision of the Boaz City Schools English Language Learners (EL) program is to help English learners experience success in the classroom and community. Our program goal is to develop skills in Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing in a safe supportive learning environment. We focus on collaboration with classroom teachers to promote engagement of EL students and in learning and we work to help EL students graduate with a plan for their future by helping them transition into post-secondary opportunities.
Who Qualifies as an English Language Learner?
An English Language Learner is a student in grades K-12 that is currently learning English to be successful in school.
Students who have a language besides English spoken in the home are evaluated to see if they need additional English language support to be successful in school.
EL students are identified by the Home Language Survey which is completed by all parents when new students are enrolled.
Boaz City Schools provides EL services to students in all grades at all buildings, with full-time EL teachers at Boaz Elementary School, Corley Elementary School, Boaz Intermediate School, Boaz Middle School, and Boaz High School.
