Our ELD Program

ELD- English Language Development

Cheyenne Mountain School District typically serves over 30 languages district-wide. English Language Learners (ELLs) in our district are students who have a home language other than English and would benefit academically from services that specifically address English language development. These students may have spoken English since birth or they may be new to the English language. They qualify as language learners due to differences in their language learning, or due to differences in their home language environment.


Cheyenne Mountain School District is committed to providing services for the individual talents, gifts, abilities, and challenges of its English Language Learners. We are committed to providing a learning environment which maximizes the intellectual development of each student. We believe that English Language Learners:

  • have the potential for outstanding performance
  • have specific and significant needs
  • require appropriate programming options
  • benefit from a partnership shared by the school, the community, and the parents

The goals of the program include:

  • Ensure that English learners, including immigrant and refugee children and youth, attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic content knowledge and meet the state achievement standards.
  • Focus on the development of skills in the core academic subjects.
  • Meet the needs of individual students by providing services specifically designed for each learner.
  • Use and develop home language and home culture.
  • Provide students with grade level curriculum, critical thinking and English development.
  • Assist students to become self directed learners and capable problem solvers.
  • Increase awareness of diversity and American culture.
  • Provide opportunities for students to work in interest areas.
  • Encourage students to become creative and fluent language producers.
  • Assist students to develop a solid awareness of their own talents, to build a strong self-concept, and to appreciate the value of these to self and to others.
