School Board Appoints New ELL Director


A new English Language Learner (ELL) program director was appointed by the school board on 8/12. Raul Ramirez will fill the new position that the school board approved with the budget in June. The move comes after dozens of parents expressed a need for resources for the Latino community during hearings to discuss the new state funding model held earlier this year. Ramirez will work with parents and implement objects for ELL education. He will earn $138,274.51 a year, according to the district.
