The RYSS school board approved, at its July 2016 board meeting, the mission statement, beliefs, and goals for Multilingual Education. They are as follows:
In addition to the bilingual education program, the ESL program is offered to those elementary students with a home language other than Spanish. All secondary schools in RYSS are required to offer ESL/Sheltered English and Sheltered Content programs for their ELL students in post-elementary grades through secondary grades.
Offering any program other than that required by state law should be considered temporary and must adhere to the requirements under rules for exceptions/waivers, as outlined in the Bilingual/ESL guidelines (see Forms and Documents section of this website).
