ELL Conference

San Antonio.

English Language Learners (ELLs) are a diverse and rapidly expanding group within K-12 schools, representing approximately 10% of students nationally. To help schools address this demographic shift, the ELL Conference brings together experts, administrators, and teachers from all corners of the education system to share strategies and best practices for addressing the unique needs of multilingual students. By supporting the academic and social-emotional success of English learners, educators enrich the learning experience for all students.
