Department Overview

  • The purpose of the English Language Learners Program is to ensure that English language learners and their families engage meaningfully in the full array of educational programs and services provided by the Anchorage School District.  At the core of our expertise is a focus on how students acquire academic language in school settings.  The supports we provide to schools and families stem from this focus.  We strive to continually develop increased capacity in ourselves, our colleagues, our students and our families for self-sufficiency in bridging differences of language and culture so that all ASD students engage fully in district programs and services.
