ELL is committed to supporting the district teachers and staff who support our students, and ensuring that ASD educators are equipped with the skills and resources they need to for success. We work closely with classroom teachers, counselors, and staff to provide each bilingual-bicultural student a coordinated program of study, and assist in developing cultural enrichment activities and programs in classrooms and on a school-wide basis. We also assist schools in communicating with bilingual parents in their first language, whenever possible.
