English Language Learners

Taylor County School District ELL program is governed by State laws that comply with the Consent Decree, which is the legal framework for provision of services to students who speak a language other than English.  Students are identified upon registration at their school, and after initial screening on an English proficiency test. 

Each school in Taylor County has an ELL Committee that meets to resolve and decide on any issues as the students adjust to their new language and culture.  Parents may request a meeting of the ELL Committee at any time to discuss their concerns and are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the process.  ELL progress toward English proficiency is assessed annually using a state-wide standardized proficiency test called the ACCESS for ELLs.
