Lincoln Community School offers English language support for students in Grades 1-10 with specialist consultation available in Grades 11 and 12. All new learners of the English language participate as fully as possible in the school’s complete curriculum. This sheltered immersion approach to English language support allows students to actively participate in our school program with a level of differentiation that matches their stage of English acquisition.
EAL support levels are determined through World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA), previous teacher reports and their language background. Students with a history that suggests a possible need for EAL support are typically assessed using the WIDA when they arrive.
