Programs and Services

SPS has a continuum of interventions that have been developed for English Learners based on their understanding of the English language in four domains:speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The levels of programming available for students include the following:


Newcomer Programming

    • Programming that provides specific support to students who perform at a lower level in the four domains will be available at:

                            Will Rogers Elementary          Stillwater Middle School

                          Stillwater Junior High School    Stillwater High School

    • Students who participate in newcomer programming will spend part of their day in an EL classroom with intensive language support provided by one of the newcomer EL teachers.

EL Intervention Programming

    • Programming that provides specific support to students who perform at a level which indicates additional support is needed is available at all district schools.

EL Consultation Support

  • For students who do not require direct EL services, consultation support with classroom/content teachers will be available from school site EL Specialists at all district schools.  

Current federal guidelines require that ELs receive academic support and intervention if their English Language development skills inhibit them from accessing the curriculum at grade level.
