English Learners (EL)
English Learner students and programs are held to a high-stakes federal requirement similar to AYP called AMAO. (Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives). We recently received our 2011-12 data from MDE: EL students in Columbia Heights MADE AMAO in ALL categories! This is the first time in five years that we have met all targets. Our English Learners more than doubled the state’s target for attainment of language proficiency.
A lot of work from many people goes into the achievement of our EL students and makes a tremendous difference for students. Congratulations to our EL students and staff for this accomplishment!
