ELL enrollment data from State Department of Education, EdSight.
There were 312 English-language learner students and 4 teachers specially trained to work with this population in Hamden School District, according to data from 2016-17. Here's how that student-teacher ratio compares with similar districts and the statewide average.
Those 4 educators included 0 bilingual teacher(s) and 4 TESOL teacher(s).
TESOL and bilingual teachers differ in instructional practice. TESOL is english-only and teachers are trained to use visuals and other supports to help English learners. Bilingual teachers know two languages, and use both of them to teach and translate materials for students.
