English Learner Program

Who are English Learners? 

English Learners (ELs) speak and/or understand another language besides English in their homes. ELs are supported and instructed on social and academic language needs.

English Learners in Farmington schools speak many different languages including Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Portuguese, Polish, and Telugu. English Learners make up approximately 5% of the student population in Farmington Schools. 

The ELL Program goals are as follows:
