For Our Parents
EL Parent Resource Center
Clinton Park Elementary library now has an EL Parent Resource Center. You may check out these materials to use at home with your students. Some resources included are books and DVDs that introduce letters and sight words for first time English speakers. We also have sets of early reader books for those students who are starting to read. The resource center also features multicultural books which celebrate traditional stories of various cultures. We also have bilingual books for students and parents to read together in their native language and English.
MDE English Learner Guidelines
The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) publishes the English Learner Guidelines which outlines the requirements for the language services provided throughout the state. If you have any questions about EL regulations and supports, please look at the manual online: www.mdek12.org > Elementary Education and Reading > English Learners > English Learner Guidelines.
