The Pecatonica Area School District supports the right of all English Learners (ELs) to be provided the same educational opportunities and equal access to programs that are afforded all other students. The District believes in the assets our multilingual students bring to school and work to honor those assets while preparing students for future education and the workplace.
English Learners are entitled to age-appropriate core curricula at all levels of English proficiency. The District will ensure our English Learners are able to meaningfully and equally participate in all aspects of schooling. This includes core and non-core curriculum and extracurricular activities. The District will provide appropriate language assistance services that are educationally sound in theory and effective in practice.
These services shall include the identification of students who are English Learners (ELs), the implementation of curricular and instructional modifications, the assessment of the English Learner (EL) student's academic progress, identification of EL students that achieve English Language Proficiency (ELP), and continued monitoring of ELP students. The degree of modification, the duration, and the type of services shall be determined individually and shall be based on the needs of each student.
For more information or if you believe your child may require EL services, please contact
