English Learner Education

Ms. Sherbakov’s EL News for October 2019

Hello, MSKC families! As the English Learner teacher here, I have spent most of this month meeting and screening many of our wonderful kindergartners. Per Massachusetts requirements, I must screen all students whose families list another language anywhere on the Home Language Survey, which was submitted upon kindergarten registration. Since our MSKC students and their families report speaking some 30 different languages, it has been a busy September! Families whose children were screened received an initial notification letter about this process in the beginning of the month, which will be followed with another letter with the results of the screening. Those students who qualified as English Learners will begin receiving ELE services in October. I’m looking forward to working with many of our great MSKC students this coming year!
