Wayne County is home to the largest English learner (EL) population in the state of Michigan (over 37,000 ELs in 33 school districts and 108 PSAs). The Wayne RESA EL Services Program provides direct EL services to our EL Consortium districts as well as a wide array of professional learning opportunities to educators throughout the county.

As of last year, our EL Program has embarked on a new initiative – the Wayne RESA New EL Services Model, which is aimed at assisting local districts in taking ownership of their EL education services through a package of coaching, consulting, and capacity building. Please contact us if you would like more information on the services we provide.
