Preschool for ELLs Paid for by Federal Grants

| 1 Comment

A school district in California and another in Pennsylvania take different approaches to using federal grant money to strengthen education for preschool English-language leaners, according to two articles posted at TESOL in the News.

"South County Parents Embrace Bi-Literate Education" tells about a two-way immersion program for preschoolers in Lake Forest, Calif. The article said it's the third and final year for the program, but doesn't explain why it's the final year.

"SDL: Big Grant to Aid Pre-School ESL Students" reports that public schools in Lancaster, Penn., will improve English-as-a-second-language services at the preschool level by hiring a preschool teacher trained to work with ELLs, three bilingual assistants, three literacy coaches, and a parent liaison.
