ELL Programming

The district works to improve programming for second language learners.

English as a Second Language (ESL) services at Lewis Central Community School District are designed to meet the individual needs of all English Learners (EL’s). Lewis Central had identified the following goals for all EL’s in grades PK-12:

  • EL’s will meet or exceed English proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and understanding.
  • EL’s will meet or exceed proficiency in grade level appropriate skills.
  • EL’s will have equal opportunity to access the general education curriculum.
  • EL’s will be taught by highly qualified and credentialed instructors.

While services may vary due to individual needs, instruction is provided through a collaborative effort between the ESL teacher and the general education teachers. The district employs 2 full time teachers that provide direct services to students’, collaborate with general education teachers, and monitor the academic achievement of all EL’s in grades PK-12.

The LAU (EL) plan that includes information about identification, assessment procedures, program delivery, professional development, evaluation and special program is available at the Educational Resource Center. Many school documents are available in Spanish and can be obtained from each building office or the ERC. Translation and interpretation is also available upon request. Please contact Laurie Thies at 712-366-8311 if you have any questions.
