Students with Interrupted/Inconsistent Education
Students who are identified as being Students with Interrupted/Inconsistent Formal Education (SIFE) receive instruction specifically aligned to supporting their academic and linguistic growth. ELLs are identified as SIFE based on the results of their performance on the Mulit-Lingual Screener (MLS). Students who score two or more grade levels below their current grade level in reading and/or math in their home language are designated as SIFE. Their instructional schedules are created to support their linguistic and academic goals.
