English Learner Program

  • Big Lake Schools' English Learners Program is designed to provide assistance to students learning English, called English Learners, to help develop their American English skills to a level where they can succeed in mainstream classrooms.

    Students are eligible for the English Learners Program if:

    • Parent(s) list a language other than English on the Home Language Questionnaire; and,
    • The student shows a need for English Learner services and instruction based on language tests, teacher recommendations and parent input

    Parents complete the Home Language Questionnaire at the time of enrollment. If a student is identified as an English Learner, parents will be notified of the services available to the student. Parents do have the ability to decline English Learner services, if desired.
