Introduction to ELL for ELL Families
For families new to Peabody schools, please contact the nearest school for registration information (information such as telephone numbers can be found on the district and individual school websites). If you speak a first language other than English, we will provide English language testing and program placement to those children enrolling in school. If you need an interpreter for school purposes, please tell the office staff at your child's school.
We encourage parents to take an active role in the education of their children and in their school community. If parents feel uncomfortable helping their child with homework or other tasks in English, they can support literacy development and other aspects of learning in the home language. Here we will provide web sites so you can go and help your self and your children to learn the new language (English).
