English as a New Language

The English as a New Language (ENL) program is overseen by the Office of Instruction. The Office of Instruction provides support to teachers in developing and implementing educational programs for English Language Learners (ELL). This support includes:

  • Compliance with state and federal laws, regulations, policies and funding
  • Oversight of instruction and assessment practices that support academic achievement for ELL
  • NYSESLAT testing
  • ELL community reach-out and parent education

ENL classes for English Language Learners in grades K-12 focus on building communicative competence and acquiring academic English language skills. Support is also provided to students in the UPK program at our elementary schools. Through daily listening, speaking, reading and writing activities in the English language, students are supported so as to be able to meet with success in a school setting. ELLs acquire cultural and linguistic competencies necessary for functioning in school, the local community and American society so as to be effective, multilingual, global citizens. 

Churchville-Chili has more than 75 students identified as English Language Learners. These students are from more than 17 countries and speak at least 19 different languages.
