Comments from past participants:

" Reading this text has convinced me that teaching academic vocabulary needs to become a priority for us."

" This entire book has been very helpful. I know that I will have it handy throughout this next school year and refer to it often."

" I would like to use this tool as a resource as I help other teachers understand how ELLs learn. It will also be a
useful tool in making decisions about whether an ELL might have a learning disorder."


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.
