Plan for Hiring Teachers working with English Learners
All teachers of any language instruction program for English Learners (ELs) need to be fluent and competent in the four domains of language assessed by the English Language Proficiency Assessment: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Personnel hired in Decatur County Schools will be required to prove proficiency as follows:
A teacher’s fluency in listening and speaking will be documented and evaluated during the interview process. The person conducting the interview will be responsible for noting listening mistakes, miscues, grammar and syntax mistakes, and judge the level of fluency for both speech and listening.
Reading will be evaluated through the reading and responses that show understanding of the application process. Reading may be satisfied through the college transcript if from an English speaking university.
Writing fluency will be determined through answers required in the teacher application and resume that are submitted to the Board of Education.
