English Language Learners (ELL)
Learner Support provides English Language Learners (ELL) classes and labs for students who wish to develop more proficient English skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. These classes are offered at various times throughout the district and students can join most classes at anytime.
The ELL program is open to students of all levels of proficiency from non English speaking to highly advanced. Students may enroll in classes and labs appropriate to their ELL level. ELL students may also work with a conversation partner. Conversation partners are volunteers who devote time each week to conversing with ELL students in English.
ELL students must present proof of residency, a valid VISA, or current status papers in order enroll in Western classes. ELL classes and labs are offered free to Wisconsin residents. Non-resident students may be required to pay tuition and fees.
ELL classes are available at La Crosse, Independence and Sparta only. For more information, please call 608.785.9535 or 608.785.9542.
