MLL/ELL Boot Camp (August 2021)

August 16 @ 8:30 am - August 19 @ 10:00 am

In this four-day training, participants will learn the ins and outs of MLL/ELL education in charter schools. We will cover mandates and best practices when it comes to: federal and state regulations, translation and interpretation, enrollment, assessment, programming, and instruction. Participants will have ample opportunities to reflect on next step and connect with fellow new-to-charter MLL/ELL educators.

Note: This year we are spreading MLL/ELL Boot Camp across FOUR SESSIONS IN FOUR DAYS. The deadline to register is August 12.

08/16/21 – MLL/ELL Enrollment/Identification & NYSITELL Administration
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM

In this session, we will deep dive into national and local regulations and best practices associated with the MLL/ELL enrollment and identification process, including tips for NYSITELL administration and scoring. This session will address current state guidance including any COVID-19 implications. Participants will leave this session being able to articulate their next steps for ensuring compliance with MLL/ELL laws and MLL/ELL identification procedures.

08/17/21 MLL/ELL Programming & Core Instruction
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM

You have identified your MLL/ELL students and their proficiency levels. Now what? This session will address compliance and best practices for MLL/ELL programming and provide many ideas for how to differentiate for MLLs/ELLs during core content instruction. Participants will explore high leverage research-based strategies that can be built into lesson plans, regardless of content area. Built-in work time will be provided for participants to consider where and when the differentiation strategies presented can be implemented into future lessons whether in a brick-and-mortar, remote or hybrid classroom.

08/18/21 -MLL/ELL Assessment & NYSESLAT Administration
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM

In this session, we will discuss the ins and outs of NYS assessments and MLL/ELL testing accommodations. Educators will also receive a high-level overview of the NYSESLAT and have time to unpack the NYSESLAT rubrics and performance level descriptions that can drive instruction throughout the year.

08/19/21 – MLL/ELL Family Engagement & Advocacy
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM

Empowering families to be active participants in their child’s education is vital to student success. Unfortunately, MLL/ELL families sometimes find it difficult to participate in their child’s education due to language and culture barriers. This session will review federal regulations around MLL/ELL family communication and give participants suggestions and ideas on how to engage and empower MLL/ELL families as partners in education using a culturally responsive lens.

Collaborative members will use only ONE Special Populations Compliance seat to attend this four-day event.
