School district accommodating growing English language learning community
from Laramie Boomerang
The number of English language learners in the Albany County School District in New York more than quadrupled in the last five years, from about 35 to more than 160. Barbara Farley, the English language learners, or ELL, coordinator, said the district has invested money, hired teachers and expanded the ELL program in an effort to accommodate the growing population of students learning English. Those investments are paying off, she said.
