Student Identification; who qualifies for EAL support?

Q: What about newly arrived students from Philippines, Wales, Ireland, etc. who have received their schooling in English in their home countries?

A: Monitoring these students for academic and social learning is part of the language services that we provide to speakers of variations of English. This would include newly arrived Filipino students and others who need to learn the language and culture of our Canadian school and social context. Will their level of academic English interfere with their success in school? If so, they should be reported to Student Services for inclusion on the EAL list for funding and then be provided with appropriate supports &/or on-going monitoring.

All EAL students need an Education Plan.

This document will give classroom teachers a brief overview of students' educational background, initial assessment, and on-going monitoring records (completed by the EAL/resource teacher) according to MB EAL Stages. Classroom teachers and EAL/resource teachers will indicate their plans for support, including differentiated instruction strategies that will be used.
