Yarmouth Schools is committed to providing supportive and effective English as a Second Language (ESL) services to its English Language Learners (ELLs) and their families. Our goal is not only to help ELLs become English proficient but to also make the content of the classroom more accessible.
English Language Learner (ELL) students in grades K-12 participate in the administration of the ACCESS for ELLs® language proficiency test. ACCESS provides a standardized measurement of academic language proficiency for ELL students throughout the state of Maine and in other states. With this information, we will be able to monitor individual ELL student progress on an annual basis.
