English Learner (EL) Services

MJSD provides a program of language acquisition and instruction so that our students are able to meet the same challenging academic content and standards that all students are expected to meet while they develop English language proficiency.

MJSD Enrollment

Our office is located at Menasha City Center on the third floor of the MJSD District Office. Our address is 100 Main Street, Ste. 300, Menasha, WI 54952.

All children whose family/guardian enroll them into MJSD must have a completed Home Language Survey (HLS). Students who speak or listen to a language other than English 50% or more will be able to be assessed for eligibility to be enrolled into the EL Program. 

EL Instructional Program

The program for English Learners is designed to improve the education of English learners by assisting them in learning English and in meeting state content standards. The district's curriculum follows state content standards and the World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) English Language Proficiency (ELP) standards. The standards are:​​

Standard 1: English learners communicate for social and instructional purposes.​
Standard 2: English learners communicate for academic success in the content area of Language Arts.

Standard 3: English learners communicate for academic success in the content area of Mathematics.​
Standard 4: English learners communicate for academic success in the content area of Science.
Standard 5: English learners communicate for academic success in the content area of Social Studies.

EL students receive English language support in grades K-12. Our district offers two types of programming for EL students. Students whose home language is Spanish may choose the dual language option for learning academic language and literacy in both Spanish and English. Students and their families may also choose to receive services through the co-teaching model. The EL teachers collaborate through co-teaching, pushing-in, or consulting, with general education teachers for instruction of students in both English language development and content standards.
