ENL Department 

The William Floyd School District is committed to providing 854 students with English as New Language Services.

Our English as a New Language (ENL) program is designed to meet the needs of our students as they progress from an entering (beginner) to a commanding (Proficient) English speaker.  Students enrolled in ENL courses must take the New York State English as a New Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) each year until proficiency is achieved.  Upon achieving proficiency, our ENL students continue to receive support for two years.

Our ENL programs enable students to become familiar with their school and classroom environments while maintaining pride in their native culture.  The district is also committed to provide on-going supports to families, teachers and students who take part in and support our ENL programs and services.
