English Learners

South Windsor Public Schools English Learner Program

Who is an English Learner? An English Learner (EL) is a student whose native language is not English and who needs support learning English. To be identified as an EL, a home language survey must be given when a child is registered for school (or shortly thereafter). The survey is usually three to five questions. If the home language survey shows a child is eligible, he or she will be tested to see how well he or she uses English.
