English Language Learners
ESU 13 supports panhandle schools in their efforts to serve English learners and immigrant children. EL programming addresses the dual purpose of English language development and content standard proficiency for students whose first language is other than English. ESU 13 can provide assistance with identification, assessment, curriculum, instructional strategies, and reporting.
Districts new to serving English learners are encouraged to join area districts already serving LL students in the ESU 13 Title III Consortium. The consortium meets several times a year to focus on current research, state and federal policies, and local needs.

|Standards, Curricula, and Alignment||
Regional Alignment Document-This document was created in November 2014. The curriculum materials aligned by our regional ESU cadre members include: Project Talk, ELLevate, Language for Learning, Direct Instruction Spoken English, and E.L. Achieve Systematic Language Development. Most curriculum materials are very comprehensive with multiple skills, so to make the alignment document feasible, the teams most frequently used superordinate categorical terms from the original source curriculum maps rather than each minute subskill and page number. Curricula does not address all standards, nor all subskills within a standard. The curriculum maps are available for review to see details.
