As an Elementary Team, the primary initiative is to provide high quality, research-based professional development opportunities in the area of instruction that is aligned to the TEKS and the ELPS. The trainings provided are designed to help teachers effectively transition students from a Bilingual/ESL classroom to a general education, all-English instructional program. Specific professional development is provided on sheltered Instruction strategies, building academic vocabulary, and writing strategies. These trainings are aligned with the criteria students must meet in order to exit a Bilingual Program.
