Mission

The primary focus of the Sheldon ISD Multilingual Department is to assist English Learners in acquiring English proficiency and master the state curriculum. SISD also provides a dual language program to assist native English speakers in acquiring Spanish.  

 

The Multilingual Department will…

 

  • Identify SISD students as eligible to participate in a bilingual or ESL program
  • Provide all students participating in our program with instruction and resources aligned to the state’s TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and ELPS (English Language Proficiency Standards)
  • Teach with differentiated techniques, sheltered instruction strategies, and linguistic accommodations based on each students needs
  • Assist in creating College, Career, and Military Readiness for our students
