The ELE program provides instruction in English language development for eligible multilingual learners. Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) is the only program option that is offered in Holliston Public Schools at this time. SEI programming includes two components:
1. Sheltered content instruction in mathematics, English Langauge Arts, social studies, and/or science delivered in the classroom by SEI endorsed classroom/content teachers.
2. English as a Second Langauge (ESL) classes which provide English language instruction focused on developing speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in English.
Multilingual learners refer to all children and youth who are, or have been, consistently exposed to multiple languages. It includes students known as English learners (ELs) or dual language learners (DLLs); heritage language learners; and students who speak varieties of English or indigenous language.
