The English Language Learner (ELL)/Immigrant program is purposely designed to enhance school districts' capacity to provide high quality education to ELL and immigrant students. To achieve this purpose, the Nevada Department of Education (NDE) supports school districts by: providing professional development opportunities and technical assistance to increase their capacity to serve these minority students to succeed academically; coordinating ELL initiatives and ELL policy development; providing programmatic leadership to share the knowledge base of issues related to ELL programs; and supporting local institutions of higher education to develop creative professional development programs for teachers, principals, and other school-based educators.
