English Learner Services


Woodland's English Learner (EL) program provides students whose primary language is a language other than English with the opportunity to develop proficiency in reading, writing and speaking, as well as the language of academic content.

In Minnesota, an EL student is defined as a learner who:

  • First learned a language other than English, comes from a home where a language other than English is usually spoken, or does not use English as a primary language, and 
  • Lacks the necessary English skills to fully participate in classes taught in English.

In EL settings, students are part of an English language learning experience where students engage in content study and English learning simultaneously. This program is tailored to the individual needs of students and is aligned to grade level curriculum.

Gifted and Talent Development


The Gifted and Talent Development (GTD) Program extends educational challenges for intellectually and academically gifted students.

GTD children are those students with outstanding abilities and capable of higher performance when compared to others of similar age, experience and environment. They have significantly different educational needs from their peers and require educational differentiation as a regular part of their school day to ensure they reach their full potential. District 196 uses multiple criteria to help identify gifted and talented children.
