An equal and effective outreach to the English Language Learners Community as what we were able to achieve with the Native American Community in our district.


One of the most supportive elements to our success with the Native American Community engagement process is the presence of Tribal leaders and educational directors that represent the many tribes in our county and community.

We are seeking to identify and develop similar leadership in our ELL community to bridge the communication and enhance the collaboration among all stake holders. In addition we are planning to develop cultural and academic clubs for our ELL students.
