Wayne County is home to one third of all English Learners in Michigan. Wayne RESA strives to increase high quality equitable opportunities for multilingual learners and their families across Wayne County.

As Wayne RESA’s direct Englisher Learner (EL) service model is phased out effective June, 2023, the EL Department is planning for future opportunities. Through the Transitional Model, all 33 districts and 99 PSAs will have access to WRESA support as they strengthen services to multilingual learners.

For districts developing a Language Assistance Program (LAP) or looking to refine an established EL program, the WRESA EL Department provides differentiated support through a tiered model of professional development, consultation, and coaching.

Consultants are available to provide information, resources, networking opportunities and support needed to take EL Education in Wayne County to the next level. Please contact us if you would like more information on the services we provide.

Based on our recent work and feedback from focus groups last spring, the WRESA EL Department is excited to provide differentiated support to all Wayne County districts via a tiered system of professional learning, consultation, and coaching.  View our brochure by clicking the image and contact us to learn how we can design support for your district to ensure the success of your multilingual learners.
