 Dallas School District supports English Language

Learners and provides English Language

Development (ELD) services, including: 

  • We support families with translation and                           interpretation services

  • We collect home language surveys during                             student registration

  • Families may opt out of ELD services if they                               wish

  • DSD Teacher trainings include GLAD, SIOP,                               and Constructing Meaning

  • English Language Learners annually complete                                the Oregon English Language Proficiency                                       Assessment (ELPA).  ELPA scores and                                           information are shared with families to communicate their child's growth and skills
