English Language Learners (ELL)

The MELL program is designed to use existing resources to better serve English Language Learners (ELs) and migrant students.

The main purpose of the MELL program is to regularly provide guidance based on up-to-date research and emerging best practices in order to assist districts in meeting the needs of their English Learner and migrant students. The MELL Instructional Specialist offers relevant, high-quality professional learning to build the capacity and cultural competence of district staff committed to the success of culturally and linguistically diverse students and their families
