English Learners (EL)
Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Soo dhawow!
Specialized English language instruction and support is available at Cedar Ridge Elementary for English Learners. Instruction is directed at acquiring both social and academic language. In addition to specialized services, enrichment occurs within the classroom through teacher differentiation of curriculum and instruction for our multi-language learners. At Cedar Ridge, we are a very diverse community with families from Brazil, Cambodia, China, Ecuador, Egypt, India, Israel, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Somalia, and Vietnam. The ESL program is for students who have limited English proficiency (LEP) in listening, speaking, reading, or writing. Our students may have recently moved to the U.S. from another country or may have been born in the United States, but speak a language other than English at home with their parents. Currently, our ESL students comprise about 5% of the Cedar Ridge student population.
