Description

The ESL teacher's role is to provide direct EL instruction in the delivery of the school level language instruction educational program (LIEP) as well as administer the annual language proficiency assessment. Every EL student has an EL learning plan, a.k.a. an individualized learning plan, which prescribes a weekly schedule of EL services based on grade level and proficiency level. The ESL teacher serves as the "case manager" for all Els, former ELs and opt-out Els within the specific school setting. As a result, the EL teacher manages portions of the data entry into PowerSchool as well as developing a learning plan, setting educational goals, working with classroom/content teachers, administrators and parents to identify appropriate instructional modifications and assessment accommodations for the student. ESL teachers are expected to monitor the language acquisition progress of students as well as the reading and math progress to determine the student's growth and needed revisions to the learning plans throughout the academic year.
