English Language Learners in the Cedarburg School District
The Cedarburg School District serves approximately 3,100 students with approximately 40 English Language Learners (ELLs). More than fifteen native languages are spoken by students in the district. Despite the high number of Spanish and Hmong speaking students in Wisconsin, seventy-seven percent of Cedarburg School District’s culturally and linguistically diverse students speak languages other than Spanish or Hmong. The assets that these students may bring to the classroom and the school include multilingualism and familiarity with multiple cultures and ethnicities.
It is the fundamental philosophy of the Cedarburg School District to provide equal educational opportunities to all students. The purpose of the Cedarburg School District Plan for English Language Learners is to give an overview of the procedural requirements and services to be provided to students with English language acquisition needs. The force of legislation and administrative regulation protects the rights of this group of students to an equal education.
