• Welcome to English as a New Language (ENL) at Edward Williams Elementary School 
    This program is specifically intended for those students whose first language is not English.  Often times, these students speak their native language at home with parents and siblings.
                In order to be entitled to receive ENL services, a student will be administered the New York State Identification Test for English Language Learners (NYSITELL)  upon entering school for the first time, or if the student is new to the country.  The results of this exam will designate a student as Entering, Emerging, Transitioning, Expanding or Commanding.  This valuable information will determine eligibility for this state mandated program.  Our goal is to close the gap between ELLs and native English speakers by providing quality, small group instruction in Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing in English.  The ENL teacher will work closely with the classroom teacher to provide engaging and meaningful lessons so that all students can succeed.
