ELD Programs and Services
The Multilingual Education Department in Eagle County Schools provides students with language development in order for students to acquire English and attain high levels of academic achievement.
Some schools additionally provide bilingual development in order for students to attain high levels of academic achievement in both English and Spanish.
Universal Instruction for ELLs
English language development is used in all three program models in Eagle County Schools and is considered universal for all language learners, but takes different formats depending on the model selected by the school and the student’s language needs.
English language development may be taught in isolation, integrated with content or using or taught bidirectionally between two languages (such as in bridging and language transfer). A student’s linguistic needs are not stagnant and will change over time as the student gains English and moves through the language levels.
