|Miriam Ehtesham-Cating is director of the Burlington School District English Language Learner Program. Across the district, there are more than 500 students who qualify for additional services. |
At the elementary level, the district offers the STEP program for the newest arrivals. This consists of two self-contained multilingual, multi-age classrooms with dedicated ELL teachers. In mainstream classes, ELL teachers work with students using a pull-out or push-in model.
Middle school students are offered sheltered classes in addition to being placed in the mainstream classrooms.
At the high school level, sheltered classes are offered in reading, math, science, social studies and English.
In order to facilitate home-school connections, Burlington School District also employs several multilingual liaisons.
