The Chartiers Valley School District offers a District-wide English Learners (EL) instructional program for students whose dominant language is not English. 

The purpose of the EL program is to provide students with the language skills they need to participate successfully in content area classes and in their world outside of school. 

The EL department provides support to English learners as they work toward understanding and adapting to a new cultural and academic setting. EL teachers work with the English learners, their families, and the regular content area teachers and staff to assist in the academic and cultural transition, while ensuring full access to all educational opportunities available in the district. 

Listed below are a collection of EL Resources for teachers, parents and students:
