D-205 board responds to ELL concerns
ELMHURST – The District 205 Board of Education responded this week to concerns parents recently raised about the implementation of English Language Learner classrooms at Conrad Fischer Elementary School, admitting further discussions are needed.
"It certainly wasn't intentional on our part not to be good communicators in this process," Superintendent David Pruneau said during a school board meeting Tuesday night. "We certainly want to hear parent input and community input."
District 205 sent an email in response to these concerns to Fischer families and staff last week. The email explained that the changes to the ELL program are efforts to comply with state regulations. The Illinois Administrative Code, Part 228, Transitional Bilingual Education, requires that public elementary schools with 20 or more students speaking the same native language other than English provide a bilingual teacher.
