Learning for a Lifetime
English as an Additional Language

​English as a Second Language (ESL) is now known as English as an Additional Language (EAL) and ESL students are now known as English Language Learners (ELLs). 



The goal of English as an Additional Language Education  is to assist students to become proficient in English, to develop intellectually and as citizens, and to enable them to achieve the expected learning outcomes of the provincial curricula. Such suppor​t should be provided in a school environment, which values diversity, bridges cultures and works to eliminate racism.


To establish district procedures of identification, assessment and service delivery for EAL students based on Ministry guidelines.

To promote best practice models for teaching EAL students:

  •  Pro D opportunities
  •  District in-service meetings
  •  School based collaborative planning

To promote successful articulation across the district.
