English Learner (EL) Services

The EL population has grown dramatically, presenting new challenges and opportunities for educators. Now, as a result of requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act, educators will be held responsible for moving EL students to English proficiency within five years of entering school. Schools also must ensure that EL students are given access to the College and Career Readiness Standards while learning English.

Bailey Education Group offers customized professional development and coaching to strengthen EL services and to help ensure EL students are moving to English language proficiency and mastery of academic standards.

Our services are personalized to meet the professional needs of each unique school district and the diverse EL populations served within. We also provide extensive opportunities for collaboration through our network of practitioners.
