Bossier Parish English Learner Program

English Learners are identified as students who lack the necessary English skills to fully participate in classes taught in English due to one of the following:

  • First language learned is a language other than English
  • Comes from a home where a language other than English is predominately spoken
  • English is not their primary language
Bossier Parish English Learner Program Goal

To instruct and encourage EL students in their social and academic English language development through a positive and risk free environment so that they may meet the same academic standards as native speakers while at the same time maintaining their multicultural identities.
