Multilingual Learners (MLL)

The Carmel Clay Schools Multilingual Learner (MLL) program is committed to educational excellence and continuous achievement for all learners. 

The MLL program at Carmel Clay Schools serves over 500 students. We have more than 100 languages represented among our student body from over 80 countries across the globe.

The goal of the MLL program is to raise the English proficiency of all students to that of native English speakers at their respective grade levels. Once a student becomes fluent in both basic communication skills as well as academic language, the student is exited from the program. 

Carmel Clay Schools employs certified teachers, as well as instructional assistants, to provide direct MLL instructional services as well as support in the general educational classroom to students in the program. Carmel Clay Schools also employs K-12 instructional coaches who work in collaboration with other school faculty and staff members to develop appropriate instructional experiences to enable MLL students to attain their full potential.
