English Language Learners (ELL)

Welcome to the ELL Department!

Being able to understand and correctly use the English language is vital to a student's success in school.  In all English Language (EL) classes, we work on academic language development by increasing proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills so that students will not only be successful in classes here at Edmonds-Woodway, but also in life outside of school both now and in the future.  EL classes are organized by English levels and with progression through the levels students will have college-ready English skills. All EL students take the yearly ELPA21 (English Language Proficiency Assessment).  Once a student reaches proficiency on the ELPA21, they are exited from the EL program.  In addition to the EL classes, students are also supported in their content classes through advocacy for inclusion, as well as, providing opportunities for additional help.
