 Is your district experiencing an increase of English Language Learners (ELLs)?
Are you wondering how to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of your ELLs?

During this workshop we will discuss basic legal requirements, how students acquire language, and how to address cultural issues. In the
afternoon, you will split into two groups, elementary staff and middle/high school staff, to learn about specific strategies for educating English learners at your grade level. All participants will receive the new Getting Started with ELLs handbook.

CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
