English Language Learners (ELL) Reference

The Fowlerville Community Schools offer English as a Second Language(ESL) supports to students with limited English proficiency.  We have a continuum of supports for students based on their English skills and needs.  Service time and supports are based on the district's Language Acquisition Plan linked here.  Our goal is to ensure that limited English proficiency is not a barrier to a student's full participation in all of the programs and activities offered at the Fowlerville Community Schools.

We also offer translation services for parents and other family members to support communication between the schools and the families of our English Learner (EL) families.  If you require Spanish translation services, please contact Katie Sloan at (517) 223-6472.  Katie speaks Spanish and will communicate your needs to Assistant Superintendent Tim Dowker so translation services can be provided to support you in enrolling your child, communicating with school personnel, accessing district publications, participating in district events, etc.  If you speak a language other than Spanish and need translation assistance, please email Tim Dowker at DowkerT@fowlervilleschools.org.

Fowlerville Community Schools has prepared a Handbook for the purpose of educating our staff on the federal ELL regulations and to provide uniform practices for the district. 

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at the email or phone number below.
