English Learner Program
Sauk Rapids-Rice welcomes English Learners from many different countries and language backgrounds. Our English Learners (EL) program is K-12 offering that teaches the English language to students whose native language is not English. Students are taught by licensed EL teachers using methodology similar to that of teaching a foreign language to a native English speaker. Schools must provide equal opportunities to all students. Failure to take action to overcome language barriers impedes equal participation.
