The Burlington Community School District is actively responding to the unique needs of ELs. The goals of our program are aligned with Title III of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, the Iowa Department of Education publication, Educating Iowa’s ELs: A Handbook for Administrators and Teachers, and the Iowa Teaching Standards and Criteria. Since the number of ELs in our classrooms is increasing, ALL teachers have a crucial opportunity and responsibility to address their instructional needs.
