A Focused Look at Schools Receiving School Improvement Grants that Have Percentages of English Language Learner Students - Researchers looked at 11 schools in urban, suburban and rural areas that received School Improvement Grants and had ELL percentages. They found all 11 reported providing specialized services, but the schools' approaches to improvement during initial phases of SIG appeared to include only moderate attention to ELLs' needs. Two districts had no ELL-trained staff;seven larger districts had multiply-staffed ESL departments. Schools that seemed to provide stronger attention to ELLs' needs were more likely to report having school staff dedicated to that purpose.
