The Fort Huachuca Accommodation School District is a language rich school. We are fortunate to have so many languages from so many different countries in out school district.
The Ft. Huachuca Accommodation School District provides EL (English learner) support to English learners and their families. The goal of the English Learner Program is to provide every child high quality and meaningful instruction in order to access general education curriculum, allow for healthy/age appropriate social interation with school peers and succeed academically. English Learners (ELs) are provided instructional support designed to meet their unique educational needs.
Under the State guidelines FHASD is an ILLP (Individual Language Learner Plan) district. A student who has been classified as an English learner through the AZELLA test will have an individual plan that documents how the teacher will instruct the ELs in the mainstream classroom. The ILLP will specify the time allocations for each standard as set by the Arizona Department of Education. The five standards are Oral English/Conversation, Vocabulary, Reading, Writing and Grammar.
AZELLA - The Arizona English Language Learner Assessment is a standards-based assessment that meets both state and federal requirements to measure students' English language proficiency.
