Our Mission
The mission of the Licking Heights EL Department is to prepare students for academic success through integrated content-based language instruction and to prepare educators to work with this diverse population through professional development. The department will foster academic achievement, critical thinking and problem solving for students, while advocating for cultural education and enrichment for English learners within the district and the larger community.
English Language Learner Program Overview
Licking Heights is home to close to 1000 English Learners (ELs) speaking 47 different languages. The district provides various levels of services to this highly heterogeneous group of students, with diverse gifts, educational needs, backgrounds, languages, and goals. The purpose of our program is to accelerate English language literacy while valuing the social and cultural knowledge that a child brings to school. The district primarily serves ELs based on language needs through self-contained instruction and/or inclusive instructional settings.
