Bilingual/ESL

 MR 238 English Learners (ELs)

Over 30% of students in the Monmouth-Roseville school district speak a language other than English at home, and 20% of our students are English Language Learners (ELLs). This means that their English is not yet sufficient to participate and achieve in English-only classrooms without support and continued instruction in English Language Development.

Our district offers two types of services for ELs, English as a Second Language (ESL) and Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE). All ELs receive instruction in ESL for English Language Development. ESL is taught in either a self-contained classroom (K-3) or through co-teaching and/or instructional blocks taught by an ESL-endorsed teacher. Through the TBE program,  students receive instruction in English and in their native language, Spanish, from Pre-K through 5th grade. 

Our students speak over 15 different languages and represent 17 different birth countries.
