English as a New Language Services
The English as a New Language (ENL) Program serves all students whose first language is not English. Upon enrollment in U.S. schools, students complete a Home Language Survey to indicate their native language. If English is not the native language of the student, a language assessment is completed. Indiana utilizes the LAS Links assessment to determine fluency. If a student has obtained a fluent score from a previous school, it is helpful to present this at the time of registration.
ENL services are provided in all Baugo Community Schools.
An Individual Learning Plan is developed for each limited English proficient student. This document outlines specific accommodations and modifications appropriate for all classroom instruction.
Students are serviced through small group or individual tutoring sessions. These services are presented according to the language level of the student. Collaboration occurs between the mainstream teacher and ENL staff to address areas of focus. Additionally, the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards and Language Assessment Scale (LAS) standards are utilized.
