English Lanuage LearnersThe Kaneland School District has an English Language Learner (ELL) Program which serves students in grades, K-12, whose primary language is other than English. In order for students to be eligible for this program, they have to be screened with a state language proficiency test called ACCESS.
The ELL Program provides students the language tools they need to speak, read, and write in English. Research shows for second language learners to learn English, it takes an average of 0-2 years to be orally (listening/ speaking) proficient and 5 to 7/ 9 years to be be academically (reading/writing) proficient in another language. Our goal is to get our students to be proficient in English and be able to successfully access the curriculum. Over thirty different languages are spoken by students and their families in the Kaneland School District.
Kaneland is dedicated not only to external assessment (ISAT, IMAGE, ACCESS, and PSAE) but providing data on internal local assessments to our community. We are pleased to share our progress in student learning and achievement. These links support our work towards achievement of our strategic plan goal in Teaching and Learning.
