English Learner


The Telra Board recently voted to simplify the definition and identification of English Learners (EL) for the purposes of the Educationally Disadvantaged weighted lottery.

Rising Kindergarteners (and any applicants who have never attended school), will be identified as EL if the Home Language Survey completed during enrollment indicates a Home Language other than English. For all other students (typically those entering in grade 1 or above), Telra will designate them as EL if their prior school records indicate English Learner status.
