English 1 for English Language Learners


In order to support the needs of English Language Learners (ELs) throughout the state, NCVPS is revising several core courses to include SIOP and WIDA-based supports for ELs. A subject-certified, WIDA and SIOP trained, teacher will teach EL students alongside their Native-English speaking peers.  The courses fully align with Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Math and include language development supports for all domains of language. EL students will have the opportunity to read, write, speak, and listen alongside their peers.

English I with EL supports will be offered starting Fall 2016, English II with EL supports will be offered starting Spring 2017.  Math I with EL supports will be offered starting Fall 2017.

For Fall 2016 registration, in the NCVPS Registration system, please register EL English 1 students in the course titled EL English I (10212X0). English 1 students should still be registered in the course titled English I (10212X0).

Please Note: the course code is the same, but the titles distinguish an EL registration from a Traditional registration. Our Instructional Directors and Registration team will combine these students into single course sections and assign them to an 9-12 English-certified, SIOP and WIDA trained teacher who can meet the needs of all students  More registration details for EL English 2 (to be offered Spring, 2017) and EL Math 1 (to be offered Fall, 2017) are coming soon.
