Multilingual Learners

Multilingual Learners at Monmouth-Roseville CUSD 238

Over 30% of students in the Monmouth-Roseville school district speak a language other than English at home, and 20% of our students are English Learners (ELs). This means their English is not yet developed enough to participate and achieve in English-only classrooms without support and continued instruction in English Language Development. Our students speak over 16 different languages and represent 19 different birth countries. 

Our district offers two types of services for ELs, English Language Development (ELD) and Dual Language education. All ELs receive ELD instruction in either a self-contained classroom or through co-teaching and/or instructional blocks taught by an EL teacher who has received specialized training. Through the Dual Language program,  students receive instruction in English and in their native language, Spanish, from K through 6th grade with a focus on literacy in both Spanish and English.

Mission

Multilingual students will acquire and develop English language proficiency through a rigorous curriculum, research-based teaching strategies and supports that provide integration into all school programs and services, and enhance academic success. Meanwhile, they will be encouraged to value and develop their native language and culture. This will enable students to develop into confident, multicultural and multilingual learners who can actively contribute in their global world.

Vision

It is our vision that multilingual students will use English and their native languages competently in order to succeed academically and socially in their classrooms, schools, and communities at large.

The following guiding principles support our vision:

* ELs are held to the same high expectations of learning established for all students.
* ELs receive instruction that builds on their background knowledge and cognitive abilities.
* Individual needs and proficiency levels are respected and accommodated through the use of various instructional methods fostering high academic achievement.
* ELs are proportionately represented in all school programs and services.
* The academic success of ELs is a responsibility shared by all educators, the family, and the community.
* All educators support a multicultural and multilingual additive perspective.
