English Learners

In District 28, we are committed to providing a learning experience that values a student’s native language and culture. It is our goal to support English language development in the areas of speaking, listening, reading while also supporting a child’s social-emotional well-being.

Across the district, we have multiple EL teachers who are dedicated to supporting our students during individual, small group, and whole class instruction. The contact information for members of our EL team is as follows:
