    English Language Learners


    The English Language Learner (EL)/Immigrant program is purposely designed to enhance school districts' capacity to provide high quality education to EL and immigrant students. To achieve this purpose, the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) supports school districts by: providing professional development opportunities and technical assistance to increase their capacity to serve these minority students to succeed academically; coordinating EL initiatives and EL policy development; providing programmatic leadership to share the knowledge base of issues related to EL programs; and supporting local institutions of higher education to develop creative professional development programs for teachers, principals, and other school-based educators.
