K-12 English Language Development (ELD) Program

"One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way."  -Frank Smith

The Walled Lake Schools English Language Development (ELD) program serves over 1100 students that are learning English or come from homes in which a language other than English is spoken. Services are provided to meet the individual needs of the students and may include ELD classes or support from our ELD teacher and/or paraeducators in or out of the classroom.  

Our ELD staff includes 1 program coordinator, 1 program assistant, 9 ELD Teachers, and 30 highly-trained ELD Pareducators, many of whom are bilingual.

There are more than 80 languages represented in the Walled Lake District. Our three major languages other than English are Arabic, Japanese, and Spanish. We value our cultural and linguistic diversity!
