English Language Learners (ELL)

  • North Kansas City Schools is proud to be one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse school districts in the state of Missouri. In addition to English, there are 118 languages spoken by our students and families! The English Language Learners (ELL) Department supports students throughout the district in their schools. ELL teachers and paraprofessionals provide services in students' classrooms and offer additional support throughout the day. ELL services help students to develop skills to speak, listen, read and write in academic English. The ELL Department also provides translated versions of many common resources in print or video to support parents. Interpretation servivces are also available!
