Huge growth of English language training students in 4 years
from Austin American-Statesman
The number of students in the Bastrop school district who participate in some form of English language training has jumped nearly 50 percent since 2008, the district's statistics show. The Bastrop school board recently received an in-depth report on its "English language learners" program, commonly referred to as ELL, from Tessie Young, the district's director of federal programs and grants. The report covers the 2012-2013 school year. The report describes the services provided to the ELL students through two programs — the bilingual program and the English as a second language program. The report also details student progress toward being proficient in English.
