Do all ELL students have to be enrolled in four hours of English Language Development (ELD)?

The Structured English Immersion (SEI) Models require a minimum of four (4) hours per day of ELD for every pupil who is classified as an English Language Learner (ELL). (SEI Models 5/14/08).

All ELL students who have not tested proficient on the Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) must be enrolled in four (4) hours of ELD.  The exceptions relate to half-day kindergarten students and to Middle/High School intermediate level ELL students in their second year of ELL status.
