English Learners

The EL Program at NKCES provides direct services and consultation to eight school districts in the northern Kentucky region. These districts are: Bellevue, Dayton, Fort Thomas, Ludlow, Pendleton, Silver Grove, Southgate, and Walton-Verona. We provide consultation to two additional districts: Beechwood and Williamstown. Our goals are: 1) To help our English Learners to achieve academic success; and 2) To ensure that our districts are in compliance with state and federal guidelines regarding English Learners.
