Culturally Diverse Populations
Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 is committed to providing equal educational opportunities to all students. Inability to speak and understand the English language may prevent children from complete and effective participation in the general educational program. The English Language Development (ELD) program has been developed to ensure that all students have equal access to the curriculum and equal opportunities to participate and succeed in the educational environment.
The goals of the ELD program focus on helping students with limited English skills to:
- Attain high levels of cognitive academic language proficiency skills in English.
- Meet the same state academic standards that all children are expected to meet.
- Develop pride in their cultural background and respect for all members of our multicultural community.
