Education of Homeless Children and Youth

In Arizona, the law requires that all students who have been designated as English Language Learners per the AZELLA (Arizona English Language Learner Assessment) will receive daily hours of English Language Development (ELD). All English language learners will participate in one of two programs: Structured English Immersion (SEI) or Individual Language Learner Plan (ILLP). Catalina Foothills School District presently participates in the ILLP program.

Elementary English language learners will receive the four daily hours of ELD instruction within the mainstream classroom. As part of, or in addition to, the four hours, instruction may be with an English Language Development (ELD) teacher. If the students leave the mainstream classroom with an ELD teacher, they may be grouped with other English language learners. The students may also receive additional support through support staff in the classroom. At the high school, a student may take an additional English class or an English Language Development class in lieu of an elective. Middle school students may choose a second English class. The ILLP team at your school will work together to create a schedule and goals tailored to a student’s English language learning needs. The instruction is focused on students becoming proficient in English. Therefore, the implementation of the ILLP is language driven with academic content as the vehicle, where appropriate.
