ELL Programs for teacher training & staff development About 49.9 million students were enrolled in US public schools (pre-K to 12th grade) in the 2007-2008 academic year, according to US Department of Education statistics. Of them, 10.7 percent or more than 5.3 million children were English language learners (ELLs). Often, in larger districts, personnel are in place to create and modify their English Language Learner programs. In smaller districts, or in districts that have had a large influx of immigrants or refugee students in a short period of time, the change can feel overwhelming. At Educational Training Specialists, LLC, we have more than 25 years of experience with the various programs available to address the needs of English Language Learners (ELLs). We are specialists in the training of research-based strategies to teachers of English Learners that have helped both teachers and their students feel successful in the educational process.
