The Contra Costa County Office of Education is proud to collaborate with the Santa Clara County Office of Education as the regional center of the California Collaborative Grant for Accelerating Learning (CCLA). This grant is designed to help participants continue to build their knowledge and literacy skills. English language learners (ELLs) are students who cannot communicate fluently or learn effectively in English. They usually come from non-English-speaking homes and environments, and require specialized or modified instruction both in the English language and in their academic courses.
The mission of Internationals Network is to guarantee that all recent immigrant students who are learning English have access to quality school education that prepares them for college, career and full participation in democratic society. Generally speaking, English learners do not possess the English language proficiency needed to fully engage in American society or reach their full academic potential in schools and learning environments. Therefore, it is essential to comprehend what special requirements are necessary for ELLs attending a science school in Contra Costa County. The first requirement is that all ELLs must be enrolled in an approved English language program. This program must be designed to help them develop their English language skills so they can understand and participate in their science classes. The program should also provide support for their academic needs, such as tutoring and other resources. In addition, ELLs must also meet the same academic requirements as other students.
This includes passing all required tests and completing all coursework. It is important to note that some schools may have additional requirements for ELLs, such as additional assessments or special classes. Finally, it is important for ELLs to have access to resources that can help them succeed in their science classes. This includes access to tutoring services, online resources, and other support services. It is also important for ELLs to have access to mentors who can provide guidance and support throughout their educational journey. In conclusion, there are specific requirements for English language learners attending a science school in Contra Costa County.
These include enrollment in an approved English language program, meeting the same academic requirements as other students, and having access to resources that can help them succeed in their science classes.
