Meeting the Needs of ELL Students

Our Students

About half of Eagle County Schools students come to school already speaking a language other than English at home. This makes Eagle County Schools the perfect environment for dual language education.

Eagle County Schools uses the terms English Language Learner (ELL, EL) and Emerging Bilingual (EB) interchangeably.
