Goal-Setting

The Linguistic Instructional Alignment Guide (LIAG) Training should be turned around to all content-area staff members before the Winter Break.


If your teachers are needing additional support in setting student goals, Katie Walker and Maria Scott are available to provide support in PLCs, conference periods, or meetings scheduled by request.


Each ELL should have identified ELPS goals that align with their TELPAS Proficiency levels. We encourage teachers to communicate this information with both the ELL and the family so all participants may support the student's language acquisition.
