English Language Learners
Students new to our district who speak other languages are assisted in each building according to a detailed English Language Learner Program. This program will be revised in 2016-17, with new LAS testing and the elimination of the CMT for exiting purposes.
Parents who are enrolling new students in our schools are asked to complete a Language Assessment Form, which helps to determine if a bilingual education program or ELL services are needed.
The district English Language Learner teacher is Louise Gauthier; her office is located at Colchester Elementary School. Erin Mucciaciaro is the tutor servicing students at Jack Jackter Intermediate.
