Access to Curricular and Extracurricular Activities
Abby Kelley will ensure that ELs across all levels of language proficiency can access and fully engage with the rigorous grade-level standards. ELs at AKF have access to all educational program opportunities and instructional programs or extracurricular activities available within the school for which they qualify. English proficiency levels do not determine participation in academic programs and services including career and technical education programs, counseling services, special education services, gifted and talented programs, performing and visual arts, athletics, and any elective classes offered in the school. ELs also have a right to receive any guidance and counseling offered by the district in a language they can understand, including, e.g., academic, psychological, college and career counseling as provided by the school psychologist, school adjustment counselor/social worker, guidance counselor or career counselor.
