English Language Learners (ELL)

  • Duarte Unified School District receives Title III funding from the federal government to help English Language Learners (ELL) to speak, read and write in English and to achieve in reading and mathematics. School districts and other agencies that receive Title III funds are reviewed each year, as required by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, to see if they meet the three Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAO) for their English Language Learners:
    • Progress in learning English
    • Progress in the percentage of students who become proficient in English
    • Academic targets in English-language arts and mathematics
    Parents, for more information about your child's performance toward meeting these targets, please contact your child's teacher and/or school. For information on the educational program to help English Language Learners become English proficient and meet academic goals, please contact Nadia Hillman, Ed.D. Assistant Superintendent Educational Services, at 626-599-5011 or via email to nhillman@duarteusd.org
