PROVIDING EL STUDENTS WITH A LANGUAGE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Language Instruction Education Program (LIEP) Codes: Required for all students identified as EL Status - even those whose parents have waived services. These must be recorded correctly in eSchool for all EL students. Each student must have an English Language Development (ELD) Program Code and an Access to Core Content (CC) Code.
ELD PROGRAM CODE VALID VALUES:
ELD Push-in (ELD-PI): EL teachers collaborating with classroom teachers in providing English language development instruction to English Learners in the classroom by assisting ELs with language demands of the lessons.
ELD Pull-out (ELD-PO): ELs spend part of the day in a mainstream classroom, and are “pulled out” for a portion of the day to receive ELD instruction. Instruction provided by EL teachers or EL Instructional Assistants working under the direct supervision of a certified teacher. The program targets specific English skills that are preventing students from fully participating in the mainstream classroom . EL students of similar proficiency and/or similar grade level are grouped for instruction. This approach is more common in elementary school settings.
ELD Embedded (ELD-EM): ELs receive intentional dedicated ELD instruction during a mainstream content class by classroom teachers embedding instruction in English language development. This may be done in collaboration with an EL Teacher or EL Instructional Assistant working under the direction of a certified teacher. For students at emerging or lower progressing levels of the English Language Proficiency (ELP) standards, this is often a small group or individual mini-lesson specifically teaching the language needed to engage successfully across a variety of content areas. For students at upper progressing or proficient levels of the ELP standards, which are similar to grade level language standards, this is often embedded within the ELA instruction provided to all students.
ELD Class Period (ELD-CP): ELs receive their ELD instruction during a regular class period and also receive course credit for the class. This approach is more common in middle schools and high schools.
ELD Newcomer Program (ELD-NP): Separate, relatively self-contained educational interventions designed to meet the academic and transitional needs of newly arrived immigrants. Typically, students attend these programs on a short-term basis (usually no more than two years) before they enter more traditional programs (e.g., English language development and/or Sheltered Instruction courses or programs). ELs receive their ELD in this program.
ELD Declined Services (ELD-DS): Declined services and not participating in an ELD Program Note: Used only for students whose parents have declined the ELD program services.
ACCESS TO CORE CONTENT PROGRAM MODELS:
CCP Sheltered Instruction (CCP-SI): Teacher provides instruction that simultaneously introduces both language and content, using specialized techniques to accommodate ELs’ linguistic needs. Instruction focuses on the teaching of academic content rather than the English language itself, even though the acquisition of English may be one of the instructional goals. Some examples of sheltered instruction models may include SIOP, GLAD, SDAIE, and CM. Classes using a Sheltered Instruction approach can be designed exclusively for ELs or for a mixture of ELs and non-ELs.
CCP Content Classes with Integrated Support (CCP-CC): This approach has content knowledge as the goal; teachers provide appropriate linguistic accommodations/supports so that English Learners may access the content. This is not the same as Embedded ELD, but may work in conjunction with Embedded ELD as well as with other ELD models.
CCP Newcomer Program (CCP-NP): Separate, relatively self contained instructional program designed to meet the academic and transitional needs of newly arrived immigrants. Typically, students attend these programs on a short-term basis (usually no more than two years) before they enter more traditional programs (e.g., English language development and/or Sheltered Instruction courses or programs). ELs receive their core content instruction in this program. These programs enroll ELs exclusively.
CCP Declined Services (CCP-DS): Declined services and not participating in an access to core content program Note: Used only for students whose parents have declined the ELD program services.
