English as a Second Language English Language Learner ESL ELL
The Jackson County ISD believes in supporting all students through instruction, leadership, service, community, and equity. To understand what that might mean in Jackson County, we strongly recommend reading the Strategic Vision for English Learners document created in partnership between Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Michigan Association for Bilingual Education (MABE), and Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
The most current information about English Language Learners and English as a Second Language can be found on MDE's website: English Learners (EL) Resources. For more information or questions for the state department, please contact:
