The Scottsdale Unified School District’s English Language Development (ELD) Program philosophy is to provide specialized, academic English instruction to students who are not yet proficient in English and empower their families to achieve success and personal growth.
Participation in any of these programs is voluntary and requires parental signatures.
All students who enter Scottsdale schools with a Primary Home Language Other Than English (PHLOTE) are screened with the Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA). Students who are found to be limited in English Proficiency are offered English Language Development instruction.
In schools that have more than 20 ELLs in a three grade level span must offer Structured English Immersion classrooms as its method of delivering services to ELLs. Structured English Immersion Classrooms must provide four (4) hours of English language development. Schools that have 20 or fewer ELLs in a three grade level span may provide services through the use of an ILLP. ILLPs must be completed for each student specifically documenting how four (4) hours of English language development will be incorporated into the mainstream classroom
