• English Language Learners (ELL)

    Special language instruction is available to K-12 students for whom English is not their native language. School administrators and counselors alert the English Language Learners (ELL) teacher when a potential ELL student registers for school. The ELL teacher will administer the WIDA English Language Proficiency screener to determine a student's eligibility. For those students who are eligible, the ELL teacher will set up a schedule to work with them and consult with their teachers.


    Determined by the WIDA Proficiency Assessment
    BISD School Board Policy #2110 and Procedure #P2110 outline the district's policy on Transitional Bilingual Instruction.
