Spring-Ford Area School District welcomes students from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds, believing they enrich the school community. The District maintains that speakers of languages other than English hold the same rights, privileges, and responsibilities as all other students. Therefore, an equal educational opportunity will be provided for all English Learners (ELs) regardless of linguistic background.
The goal of this language instruction educational program (LIEPs) is to facilitate the development and attainment of English proficiency and academic achievement of students whose native or first language is not English. Without instruction in social and academic English and appropriate support for learning academic content, these students are at risk of losing the educational opportunities provided to non-EL students within the Spring-Ford Area School District.
There are more than 61,000 English Learners (ELs) speaking more than 200 different languages in Pennsylvania. The education of students whose dominant language is not English and who are ELs is the responsibility of every Local Education Agency (LEA). Title 22, Chapter 4, Section 4.26 of the Curriculum Regulations requires the LEA to provide a program for every student who is an English learner (EL).
