How to Support Your District’s English Language Learners

More than 36 languages are spoken at Emmett J. Conrad High School in Dallas, which has a large population of students who are from families granted refuge or asylum. While it’s common to have English learner (EL) students in today’s classrooms, educators say they are struggling now more than ever to fulfill the academic and social-emotional needs of this increasingly diverse student group.

2019 — “We are honored to partner with leading Texas districts to highlight their efforts to meet the needs of English language learners,” said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO, Apex Learning. “Districts using our digital curriculum with ELL students are able to simultaneously build fluency and subject-level mastery, providing students with the foundation they needed to excel in school and beyond.”

4 Ways Districts Can Support Below Proficient Readers

One of the most complicated and critical issues facing post-secondary district leaders today may be hiding in plain sight. Literacy rates among secondary students are staggering.

Education Leaders Highlight Use of Digital Curriculum to Unlock Success for Struggling Students

2019 — Apex Learning, a recognized pioneer and innovator in online learning for secondary education, partnered with education leaders to facilitate panel discussions on meeting the needs of struggling students at the 2018 iNACOL Symposium. “We were honored to work together with leading districts to highlight results from their programs that use digital curriculum to support diverse student populations,” said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO, Apex Learning. “When districts are able to do more to support struggling students—from those with learning gaps to below proficient readers and English language learners—the result is more students at grade level, more students passing high stakes exams and more students graduating on time.”
