The number of english language learners (ELL) in US schools is steadily growing- at approximately 14% of all students in public school. Two-thirds of ELL students come from low-income backgrounds. However, teachers and school districts struggle to meet the needs of ELL student. There is a wide and persistent achievement gap between ELL students and their native speaking peers. Ellevation is a platform exclusively focused on English Language Learners and the educators that serve them. The company’s mission is to help districts transform ELL instruction so that ELL students can achieve their highest aspirations.
Imagine a classroom where linguistically diverse students are raising their hands and engaging their peers in academic conversation - Ellevation has been developed to do just that.
