English Language Learners
ELL programs in each of the schools in Gibson County are delivered by an ELL teacher using the ELL curriculum. The ELL curriculum is a general set of English language acquisition standards that should be used in conjunction with content standards. These standards address the language support necessary to enable the ELL to access the grade-level content curriculum by providing a bridge for ELL students to the academic content curriculum. ELL is synonymous with ESL (English as a Second Language).
