Shelton's ELTF


English Learner Task Force
Posted on 10/01/2021
English Learner Task ForceWe are forming an English Learner Task Force (ELTF) to put together recommendations for how we provide instructional services and culturally enriched, welcoming environments for students who qualify for English Learner (EL) services pre-K through 12th grade. This notification is to both inform you about the Charge of the ELTF and invite you to apply to be on the task force.

Over the last six years, the number of students enrolled in the Shelton School District who qualify for English Learner services has doubled. It is abundantly clear we need to increase the quality and coordination of EL-related educational supports and services, especially across the core, general education settings. Listening to our families and EL staff, we are well poised to put a district-wide plan together that increasingly connects us to our families where English is not the primary language spoken at home.

We want to start this work in October and plan to get recommendations to Superintendent Jessee by early spring. This work will assist schools in understanding district-wide supported practices preparing us well in advance for the 2022-23 school year. Please read the attached Charge and consider applying to be on the ELTF. The task force is limited to 16 members with one-fourth of them being current students enrolled in EL services and/or their parents/guardians. The application for the task force (English and Spanish) is attached below.

This is an exciting time to take a collective step to design, implement, and elevate an instructional program that works for students enrolled in EL services across the Shelton School District.
