Educational services for English Language Learners (ELL) are based on the individual needs of the scholar. Services provided to ELL students are designed to minimize barriers to educational services and extracurricular activities and to provide an appropriate education in the least restrictive learning environment.

McAuliffe ELL staff use data collected from the Home Language Survey, completed by all families upon admission, to make preliminary identification of students who may benefit from ELL instruction.  From there, review of academic records, parent/student interview, and WIDA assessment are used to make a recommendation for ELL service delivery and goals. It is not rare for McAuliffe to re-enroll scholars into ELL services after they have been determined by the sending district that they will no longer need services.
